Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens
Kaiyu-shiki chikuzan sensui garden (a style featuring a path winding around a large central pond) which constructed at the beginning of the Edo Period (1603-1868) by Yorifusa Tokugawa, the first lord of the Mito feudal domain, and completed during the era of the second lord, Mitsukuni.
The garden is arranged with items evoking scenery from China and of famous locations throughout Japan. One of a small number of places anywhere in Japan which have received designations both as a special historical site and a place of special scenic beauty, the expansive grounds offer pleasant scenery in all seasons.
