Koishikawa Korakuen has been designated as an important historical asset and site of special historical significance

In the early Edo Period, in 1629, the founder of the Mito Tokugawa family, Yorifusa, maintained a separate Edo residence, the garden of which was completed during the reign of the second clan ruler, Mitsukuni. This garden features a central pond and hills, making it perfect for a stroll. When Mitsukuni set about constructing the garden, he incorporated some concepts of the Chinese Confucian scholar Shushunsui of the Ming dynasty, including a garden reproduction of Seiko Lake (China), a “Full Moon Bridge” and other features with cultural origins in China. Also, the scenery imitating scenic spots of various places in Japan are skillfully expressed.
Koishikawa Korakuen has been designated an important historical asset and site of special historical significance, and the metropolitan gardens designated for both are Hama-rikyu Garden and this garden only.

The area around “Daisensui” that expresses Lake Biwa, and the surroundings imitating “Tsutenkyo Bridge” and “Oigawa River” in Kyoto are popular as autumn leaves spots. About 480 Japanese maple trees color the garden and you can enjoy the autumn leaves in the center of Tokyo easily.
