Gardens · Historic Walking Areas · Sacred & Religious Sites
Quaint and historic, Mito serves as the capital of Ibaraki Prefecture, once a castle town and stronghold for the Edo-period Mito clan. Explore the city on foot or by bicycle, with its wide promenades, landscaped urban gardens, and tranquil lakes. Festivals happen throughout the year, so check the city schedule to see what's on during your Mito holiday. Don't miss the gardens with thousands of plum trees, azaleas, and bright Japanese foliage: stop for a long walk among the verdant lanes before heading to one of the capital's many museums or samurai residences. Our Japan trip itinerary builder allows you to schedule your trip to Mito, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
