Kairakuen Park, Mito

(400+ reviews on the web)
Garden
Take a pleasant stroll through Kairakuen Park, a large Japanese garden offering some natural relief from the urbane surroundings. Considered one of the three great gardens of Japan, the park's name translates as "a park to be enjoyed together," indicative of the fact that it was, unlike the other two, always designed to be enjoyed by the local populace. Opened in 1841, the gardens display white, pink, and red plum blossom trees, a bamboo grove, cedar wood, and a traditional Japanese building in the center.

  • In the middle of March drive throng. Various kinds of plum trees and plum were past full bloom, but different shades and enjoyed. Also like you can watch text Tei came into being, is interesting. Room with a view facing the garden became the mood you want to relax for a while. Souvenir shops, I also and bought a plum seaweed tea. For a leisurely stroll in the plum season other than good.

  • I went in the middle of March. Late blooming plum blossom tidbit. Not just plum, bamboo groves and around the Lake, like statement-Tei is surprisingly good and was a good atmosphere as a whole, I think. Plum also wasn't feeling that went to good weather in the second half of the Festival on Saturday, but extremely crowded, I think. Thought and the Tokiwa shrine next to the can, a few hours relaxing and fun.

  • 1 first came in the summer, so this is the greatest three gardens in Japan? So despondent and plum Festival is the revenge of the fallen. Many tourists had yet to bloom around 6 minutes. The best pink opening and lined up in front of the gate and enters the umeboshi plum dumplings. I want to store

  • A beautiful park. Although I missed the plum blossoms it was still relaxing and beautiful.
  • Really lovely park. You can walk there for hours. Stroll along the bamboo forest or the cherry trees. It's just wonderful. Perfect in spring and certainly also very nice in autumn. You should bring some time. You shouldn't just run through...
  • Beatiful place when spring..for tourist, u can get free wifi here.
  • Pretty plum blossom and historical housings.
  • One of the greatest garden. Though off-season ume seems a bit dull.
