兼六園にも二年前に行きましたが、また趣きの違う庭園で素晴らしかったです。広大な土地に清らかな小川がながれていたり、蓮池があったり、休む場所も所々あります。結婚式の前撮りをしているカップルもいて、こんな素敵なロケーション撮影ができて、幸せな方たちだなぁと羨ましくなりました。日本の素晴らしい感性を感じられる場所でした。 more »I went to Kenrokuen two years ago, but it was wonderful in a garden with a different taste. There are fresh streams on the vast land, lotus ponds, and restplaces. There was a couple who was taking a picture before the wedding, and it was possible to take such a wonderful location photography, and it became envious when it was happy people. It was a place where you can feel the wonderful sensibility of Japan.
If you are ever in Okayama, you owe it to yourself to visit Korakuen. The grounds are immaculately kept. There are plenty of Japanese style structures to see and flowers to view. You can easily done the day just walking the park and taking in the amazing views. This would be the epitome of a Japanese Garden. When I think Japanese Garden from now on, this will be the first place I imagine.
Such a beautiful and wondrous place! So much to see! Also in a great area of town. The staff was so friendly and helpful.Thank you!! I definitely recommend spending some time in this magical garden.
