Mito

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Kanto  /  Ibaraki Prefecture  /  Mito
Quaint and historic, Mito serves as the capital of Ibaraki Prefecture, once a castle town and stronghold for the Edo-period Mito clan. Explore the city on foot or by bicycle, with its wide promenades, landscaped urban gardens, and tranquil lakes. Festivals happen throughout the year, so check the city schedule to see what's on during your Mito holiday. Don't miss the gardens with thousands of plum trees, azaleas, and bright Japanese foliage: stop for a long walk among the verdant lanes before heading to one of the capital's many museums or samurai residences. Our Japan trip itinerary builder allows you to schedule your trip to Mito, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Mito

Within a ten-minute walking radius of Mito's major train station, visitors will find almost all of the capital's accommodation options. From low-cost rooms to four-star, Western-style luxury, pick what suits your budget and step out into the center of the capital. For less urban scenery, jump a few blocks to the nearby Senba Lake and select one of the handful of hotels offering views of the water. Flower festival season in August sees a rise in Mito's tourism, so book early to get your first choice.
