Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens(autumn leaves best now)
Have you been to Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens?
where very close from Kudan.
The construction of this park was started in 1629 by Mr. Yorifusa Mito, the Daimyo (Japanese feudal lord) of Mito Tokugawa family, and was completed by his successor, Mr. Mitsukuni Mito, a very famous Daimyo in the early Edo period. Mitsukuni adopted an opinion of a Chinese scholar and named this garden “Koraku-en” (Koraku means “enjoying afterwards”) after a Chinese teaching of ” a governor should worry before people and enjoy after people”. This garden is full of Chinese flavor under the influence of Mitsukuni. Korakuen was appointed as the Special Place of scenic beauty and the Special Historic Site based on the Cultural Properties Protection Law of Japan.
The autumn leaves are at their best now in Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens.
