Japanese Garden Walks: Daimyo Garden and Kagurazaka

Created by feudal daimyo lords, Koishikawa-Korakuen is one of Tokyo’s oldest surviving landscape gardens.

Learn about the purpose and symbolism of the features in this daimyo garden, as well as the contemporary social history.

Afterwards, enjoy lunch at Canal Café and explore the historic, stone-paved alleys in Kagurazaka.
