  • A nice park for a 1-2 hours stroll. Bits of everything, eg waterfalls, ponds, rice fields, fruit trees etc. It is well kept, and there are a couple of nice viewing points where you get a good overview...  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.
