Fodor's Review

One of the country's finest gardens, Korakuen has charming tea arbors, green lawns, ponds, and hills that were created at the turn of the 18th century on the banks of the Asahi-gawa. Maple, apricot, and cherry trees give the 32-acre park plenty of flowers and shade. The riverside setting, with Okayama-jo in the background, is delightful. The garden's popularity increases in peak season (April to August), but this is one of the country's largest parks, so you won't feel hemmed in by crowds. Bus 20 (¥160) from Platform 2 in front of the JR Station goes directly to Korakuen.
