Travel Guide - Koishikawa-Korakuen Garden

InformationInformation

Koishikawa-Korakuen is associated with Mito-Tokugawa family. The garden was constructed by the first Mito lord Tokugawa Yorifusa in 1629, and developed by the second lord Mitsukuni. The garden is a typical Daimyo (feudal lord) garden of the Edo era (1603 – 1868). The garden, which reflects the lakes, rivers, mountains and rural districts, beautifully reveals the eloquence of Japanese and Chinese landscapes.
