Kairakuen Park, Mito

4.0
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. Plan a trip to Mito easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Like earlier this year was around the end of March, but was still late blooming plum. Here is 早咲ki, usually bloom late because longer enjoy plum. So like plum blossoms like also wants to come back next year.

  • Cicheng Travel the next day, inquires to have this very famous garden-Kai Le Park. Here is very large, the first to arrive is a plum garden, under the tree is full of dandelion, white ball is very lovely. Go forward to the Outlook platform, you can look at the lake, the scenery is quite good. Autumn should be more beautiful ^_^

  • Speaking of kairakuen bairin is famous but enjoy plum season outside. Gardens and what is not nice to try being around friends and family and a variety of plants and of? Parking is a fee-based and free. I didn't know about that free parking is available, was stopped near the parking. Early on, you're better.

  • 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.
