  • And scattered plum types have visited 3/3 in bluish in February, was long time when in full bloom. Still surprised and white we're glad to see different colors, such as Kaga plum. A waterfall in the middle of the Park was being repaired.

  • After staying at the Tokyo Dome, this historic garden is a calm oasis. It is just a 5 minute walk from the hotel, but worlds away from the crowds there. I have only visited there in the winter, but I ...  more »
  • We stumbled across this garden whilst searching for a different one. It wasn't in full bloom yet, but we didn't expect it to be, it still being early-mid February and all! That said, some plum blossom...  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.
