Okayama Korakuen, Okayama

(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Experience one of Japan's finest landscaped gardens at Okayama Korakuen, 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.
