Stroll in the Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens

After soaking up the city of Tokyo and its bustling streets, take a deep breath of fresh air at Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens and leave on the right foot.

Considered one of the most beautiful and oldest gardens in Tokyo, dating back to the 17th century Edo period, Koishikawa Korakuen stretches over seven hectares: the guarantee of a long walk in total tranquillity right in the city centre. Far from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding streets, revitalise yourself in a true green paradise, among ornamental plum trees, maples and wisteria. From small paths, wander along the rivers, filled with lotuses and typically Japanese wooden walkways, and the vast peaceful pond, from which you'll reach the other side by taking the Full Moon Bridge. You can also admire the small rice fields, which are planted in May and harvested in September by primary school children. If you go to Koishikawa Korakuen in February, you will have the chance to attend the Ume Flower Festival, an exquisite occasion.
