It’s one of the top 3 koen (gardens) in Japan, and I have been to 2 of it. Compare to the one at Kanazawa, this koen has less to offer. However it’s quite relaxing when you go there during late afternoon when there are lesser...More
Spent a lovely 1.5 hours here walking around. Plenty to see and explore for a short visit but don’t expect to spend more time than that here.
We didn’t visit the nearby castle because we had recently been to Himeji so didn’t think it worthwhile.
It must be No.1 garden in Japan. Back to 1700, with the advanced technology, it was built as a relax pace for the Lord Ikeda. Spacious with the greenish view, packed with the seasonal flowers, also you may enjoy traditional Japanese thatched houses. Don’t miss...More

A very huge garden right next to the Okayama Castle! Buy an admission ticket that would include both the castle and the garden. The garden consists of different areas such as rice fields, tea fields and tea house, ponds with islands in the middle and...More
Korakuen was the Okayama Castle garden originally and was known for its grassy lawn terrain. It even reminded me of being on the world's most beautiful golf course. It has a lot of ponds and special flower gardens inside. It has many different views from...More
As one of the so-called 'Three Great Gardens" of Japan, Korakuen was a little underwhelming, and perhaps not at its best in mid Summer. A later visit to Kenrokuen in Kanazawa was, at least in June, much more satisfying and postcards made clear the garden...More
