Kairakuen Park, Mito

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.

  • This is the second visit. You could see plum blossoms in full bloom, is the first time in February and flowering plum is too early, we visited in early March. Many kinds of plum trees in bloom, for the first time, but the same plum so different I'm, and I was impressed. We are in the car, not visited by train. If you go from Mito station is 400 Yen "Mito tour 1 day free ticket ', you can buy a bus one-day ticket for unlimited rides. On normal bus ride takes 480 yen (RT), Kobun kan and good deals for buy discount admission statement-Tei, prefectural History Museum, Gallery, art Tower Mito, so far. I think it is intentionally move because it takes one day and I think it deserves all of free tickets, discount is good. South paradise near the bus stop intervals are short, like walking distance and can go down at any bus stop kairakuen East Gate and South paradise before the sentence before the Pavilion gate, kairakuen also go to Ibaraki Prefectural Museum of history it was. Plum during the Festival, ad-hoc, kairakuen station train to stop will be, only weekends and public holidays, and up trains to not note is required. Senba Lake along the walk from kairakuen Mito station also recommended is 30-40 minutes.

  • Maybe little late flowering than usual visit to 3/14 visitors a day just plum blossoms were in full bloom. The Park is quiet because it was time well in advance of the visit, and wafting scent of plum plum staff. It is really kairakuen's plum time. It was a blissful time. By the time I left kairakuen has admission quite a few people in and near the entrance was a hustle and bustle of the fair. If come next year and then I recommend the reinforcement in the early hours of the morning the. I would enjoy blissful hours in quiet and enter 9:00 as a guide.

  • The view is stunning. I went here on a whip. I purchased the JR Kansai Wide Pass and this place is covered. The autumn colors are gorgeous.
  • Beautiful garden and tea house (Kobuntei)
  • Numerous Japanese apricot trees are amazing when they are in full bloom. Kobuntei house was extremely crowded on Saturday afternoon and the view from the upper floor was good but not so great.
  • good view and comfortable for sight seeing, good for families
  • Went there during plum blossom season and it was beautiful! Not to be missed during the season.
