Garden Nature / Park
Experience one of Japan's finest landscaped gardens at Korakuen Garden, dating back to the 18th century. The site features traditional landscaping, streams, paths, a large pond, and hilltop lookout, but remains best known for its sprawling lawns. The garden additionally features views of the neighboring Okayama Castle. Through the years, the estate has been damaged by flooding and war, but historically accurate restoration returned it to its former glory after World War II.

  •  The season was bad or is not leisurely, summers are hot, though. Okayama Castle and the set I bought. But not anymore?

  • The most beautiful large garden that I've visited in Japan! Very scenic and spacious, with great views of Okayama Castle. Koi ponds with turtles as well, bamboo woods, tea garden, rice fields, historic rest houses, stone foot bridges. Simply too much to list here. The best walking space in my travels in Japan so far!
  • A very beautiful and lovely garden, with many things to see everywhere. A big park too with a few restaurants and you can rent a boat too(under the bridge). You have to pay to enter, but there is no fee for children/teens aged under 18.
  • Nice garden. Excellent size for a morning walk with a good variety of landscapes.
  • It's really a beautiful garden. The sequences and the different zones give you different atmosphere. There are also some beautiful tradition architecture inside.
  • If you are in okayama , a must see. They have a map with a treasure hunt like presentation for kids. Try the kibi mochi at the café by the river near the south entrance (the view of the castle is great too) and the peach flavoured soft ice cream in the park itself.
