Kairakuen Park, Mito

4.1
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.

  • Japan three visited the Mito kairakuen Park one. No plum blossom for the 11-time lonely situation. I also would like to visit during the plum. Nariakira was built like statement is view, Nice. Hall invite people within such literary guests as people of the time (more than 90 years old) and his vassals (over 80 years old) and women held were written.

  • I went to the 11-day holiday. From Mito station by taxi 10 minutes about 1,200 yen, during the holidays though, so others wouldn't. Autumn leaves was take a little bit more in the beginning to color. Without the Museum, Lake, gardens and a good statement-Tei around is about 1 hour. Still high ratio of plum, Korakuen, and is impressive compared to the 6 Park, as Japan Garden this time of year, but like sentence Pavilion is very stunning pictures on fusuma also nice, also, it is recommended!

  • 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.
  • It's a big and clean Park with thousands of plums.
  • Pretty plum blossom and historical housings.
