This is my favorite garden in Tokyo.
It’s big enough to spend an hour meandering through the glades and is especially known for its oh-so-Japanese bridges.
And it’s lovely in every season, with all the flowers made famous by haiku taking their turns.
In December – March, If you’re lucky, it will snow while you’re in Tokyo. Get on a train to Korakuen as soon as the flakes begin to stick – you won’t be disappointed!
Hours: 9:00 – 17:00
Open: Every day except 12/29-1/3
