We enjoyed it very much even though it was crowded. Entrance fee 300 yen for adult, 65 and over 150yen. Children and students-free. We were able to see the whole garden in an hour. It was breathtaking! A must during late -October~November!

Beautiful garden with wonderful planning with every turn being a new photo worthy spot. The autumn colours made the garden even more lovely. It is also not as crowded as many of the touristy spots, allowing tranquility and opportunities to take lovely photos. :)

Located close to the Tokyo Dome, this little garden is an oasis of tranquility in the Tokyo. Although not as popular as some of the other gardens and parks, I'm glad I visited this little spot. Quite a few visitors but not too many. Lots of ducks swimming in the pond/lake. Although there were some renovations works going on, it... More

I enjoyed this garden very much. I went there close to lunch time on a sunny day in late September. The entrance has a sign which warns visitors to wear long sleeves, long pants and no open shoes. In the alternative use insect protection. I was in shorts, short sleeves and flip flops but I only received three mosquito bites.... More

My wife and I recently visited Koishikawa Korakuen for the first time and we were both very pleased that we took the time to do so. Located very close to the Oedo Iidabashi station and only about 10 mins walk from Tozai and Sobu Iidabashi stations, Koishikawa Korakuen in one of the nine gardens on the "Special Places of Scenic...

I agree that this is a pleasant green space in the heart of the city but in comparison to other Japanese gardens around the country this falls short of those standards.

This garden was an absolute highlight of our Tokyo stay. It seamlessly merges the best of ancient Japan with more contemporary design into one gorgeous garden environment. We were lucky to come across a bride and groom dressed in traditional wedding attire having their photographs taken. A must see in Tokyo.

The looming white Tokyo Dome does not spoil the experience of this magnificent park.Follow the signs carefully to enter as there is only one entrance everything well translated!!!

The garden can be reached by 10 minutes walking from Korakuen station. I went there on November 2013, and once you get in, suddenly the skycrapers are gone from view and the garden welcomes you. The garden has lots of amazing corner, beautiful and peaceful pond. There are ducks too. You could easily spend time an hour or two in... More

Being right near the Tokyo Dome this is a great place to just take a break and relax. I found it a bit hard to get into as I was unaware the entrance was at the back side (from where I was). I ended up walking around the entire garden fence before getting to the entrance, which I didn't mind.... More
