Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens - 小石川後楽園

A Mito Tokugawa family garden featuring a central pond and hills, making it perfect for a stroll. The garden was created by Yorifusa, the founder of the Mito Tokugawa family and was completed in 1629 by the second clan ruler, Mito Mitsukuni (Mitokomon). In the expansive garden sprawling over 70,000 square meters, is an island known as Horaijima. Plum, cherry, wisteria and iris trees have been planted around the pond which large rocks have been placed, offering atmospheric scenes throughout the year. The garden also contains rocks and bridges which depict scenic beauties in Japan and China such as Togetsu-kyo bridge, Byobu-iwa rock formation and Tsuten-kyo bridge.
