From Korakuen Station exit to the south, walk across the elevated platform, past Tokyo Dome, down the stairs the right, then 2 blocks west, then 1 block south. From Suidobashi Station head directly west approx. 3 blocks.
There’s not a whole lot to do here, but it does have some interesting restaurants. If you have time for lunch or dinner and are in the area, pop in and check it out.
Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens is only 1 of 3 remaining daimyo (feudal lord) gardens from the early Edo Period. Land was often granted to daimyo – or put under their care for the shogun or emperor. The gardens date back to the early 1600’s and you can still see many artifacts from centuries past (such as the large stone bridge).
Unlike many Japanese gardens, Korakuen has a more Chinese (Confucian) design.
Things To Do
The park has lots of walking trails, a large and a small pond, and some great views of Tokyo from various vantage points.
