  • In France who is close to popular kagurazaka Japan garden. Suidobashi station and iidabashi station is the nearest station is about 5 minutes walk from both. Fee: 300 yen for adults and cheaper, Metro one-day pass to show became adults 300 yen to 240 yen. Early June is especially famous for cherry blossoms in spring, autumn leaves, I visited the IRIS and hydrangea bloomed beautifully. Park is almost empty and convience. It is a garden of Mito mitsukuni in Mito-Han during the Edo period came to Mito city famous for natto, Mito kōmon famous in Japan was completed by Chinese interests. Emotion, but in Japan there is recommended.

  • Admission fees of 300 which is great. The landscaping are perfect. This park is very beautiful in Autumn, but the paddy fields are all dying. They grow in summer only. Access is easy if you don't mind...  more »

  • One of Tokyo's oldest gardens and also one of it's best. It's a stroll garden and takes about 45m to walk round at a leisurely pace while taking some pictures. It's worth visiting in the different seasons to see how the garden changes. The only downside is the close proximity to Tokyo dome, which can spoil the tranquillity of the garden.
  • There aren't even words for how beautiful this place is. It's also loaded with history. Honestly one of the best places I've been in Tokyo.
  • Although it's not a large garden I loved it. I visited the garden several times in different seasons and always enjoyed it. I loved the full moon bridge.
  • One of the city’s oldest and most Romantic Japanese gardens. This beautiful Japanese landscape garden in central Tokyo features a few dozen plum trees. It’s hard to believe this calm oasis is minutes away from one of Tokyo’s most bustling business areas. Water lilies in the pond blossom from May to September, followed by Autumn leaves on the Japanese Maple trees in Mid-November. In one word – Bliss. Don’t miss the tiny restaurant overlooking the Garden (at the entrance) serving Traditional Japanese meals at a very reasonable price. Koishikawa Korakuen is a short walk from Iidabashi Station.
