           Korakuen Garden        

 

           If you are interested in traditional Japanese gardens or are just looking for a place to step out of the hustle and bustle of everyday Tokyo, then Koishikawa Korakuen is the place you should be. In fact it is without any doubt one of the most beautiful – and oldest - gardens in Tokyo. It has been designated as “A special place of scenic beauty” and “A special historic site” by the Japanese government. There are only seven places in Japan that have received this double designation. Korakuen is the only one in Tokyo.

 

 

           In the early Edo Period (1629) Tokugawa Yorifusa, a daimyo of the Mito clan and relative of the Tokugawa Shogun, started creating this garden for which he made a hill, dug a pond, and shipped in stones in order to reproduce the most beautiful landscapes of China and Japan.

 

          The garden was completed by his successor, the famous Tokugawa Mitsukuni. Based on ancient Chinese teaching that says “a governor should worry before his people and enjoy after his people”, he named the garden Korakuen, which translates as “enjoying afterwards”. Any visitor will however experience that “enjoying now, here, and every day of the year” is closer to the reality.
