Kokoen Garden, Himeji
Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
Escape to a sanctuary of natural beauty at Kokoen Garden, a collection of Japanese gardens scattered across the grounds of Himeji Castle. Constructed in 1992, these nine gardens reflect different styles of the Edo Period and welcome visitors looking for a peaceful space to unwind. Spread across 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres), the park contains elegant bridges, flower and bamboo gardens, pristine waterfalls, and a ceremonial teahouse where you can enjoy a cup of traditionally brewed matcha or green tea. The gardens are accessed via a short walk from the castle's main entrance.
