Okayama Korakuen Garden Reviews
Came here to tick one of "Three Great Gardens of Japan" off my list. This garden was by far the most spectacular Japanese garden I've been to, and is planned down to the T (haven't been to the other..... more »
A very picturesque location for very nice picture. The Okayama castle is just located beside the garden and provides for a good backdrop. A peaceful stroll around the garden. A well maintained garden.... more »
A great place to visit and worth your time to walk and enjoy the environment. I recommend visiting the small hut in the pond for a tea ceremony, for only 800 yen its well worth the experience. Hand made cups. Very relaxing. Limited English but the hostess is friendly and will try her best. Some great photos can also be taken of the area. Lots of fish as well.
It's a nice place for a walk. Not much going on though... If you just want a nice park to stroll through, it's good. But the actual amount of historical information provided is quite slim. Maybe that's by design because they don't want to put signs all over the place?
