The origins of the Koishikawa Kōrakuen Garden dates back to the early Edo Period in the 1600s and is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Tokyo. With its name derived from an early poem of encouragement, the park features traditional Japanese design and aesthetics, with winding pathways, lanterns of stone and arch-shaped bridges and moats that blend in handsomely with the surrounding trees and greenery. During the seasons of Spring and Autumn, the park transforms into a place of breathtaking scenic beauty, with the lush environs blossoming into a kaleidoscope of colour and splendour. The picture-perfect surroundings and the overall natural allure of the park have made it a must-visit location for all nature-enthusiasts who visit Tokyo.
