Kairakuen Park, Mito
(3.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 簡單說,花季以外沒什麼好看的,雖然整個園子給人的感覺很悠閒。 不過看不到什麼,加上離JR車站有點距離, 還是在花季時來會比較好。 夏天的話除了一片綠好像也沒有太驚喜的東西。
