"Korakuen Garden - Top three in Japan" Top 5 Page for this destination Japan Things to Do Tip by SLLiew

Japan Things to Do: 736 reviews and 1,308 photos


This is the No. 1 attraction for Okayama as one of the officially top 3 best gardens in Japan.

At the entrance, you will see open lawns and then landscapes, bridges and even waterfalls. The black castle (usually white in Japan) is in the background.

It can be hot to wander around but appreciation of Japanese garden requires learning and training of the senses.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
