Korakuen Garden is one of the three most famous Japanese gardens in Japan, a very beautiful one indeed. The garden looks so different in 4 seasons, also Okayama Castle just beside this huge & beautiful Japanese garden.. I've been here 3 times in different seasons.
These gardens are rated some of the most beautiful in Japan and they did not disappoint. They were gorgeous during the da y time and stunningly dramatic at night with the specially created lighting effects. Almost as impressive as the aesthetic beauty were the care...More
Magnificent garden with a ton of Japanese history attached. The garden although relatively small, feels spacious, is very peaceful and is on an island that is right next to Okayama Castle. A must see if you are into gardens, I think it would be particularly...More
Probably the 2nd most scenic landscape garden in Japan after kenrokuen in kanazawa. Nice pond. Make sure you get there on the only day they release the elusive herrons. Beware tho they can make very very big... so bring an umbrella!
One of the best Japanese gardens. Compared with other great Japanese gardens, this one is very open and spacious, peaceful and has warm feeling. Maybe it is because of clear water coming through from a nice river next to it. Hard to explain but I...More
We went in the morning for short visit since this is listed as the top 3 garden in Japan. We only had a short visit so we decided on this over Okayama Castle. The garden is very serene with beautiful landscaping.
What a fabulous large garden split up into different sections. There is a large central pond, sections of rice fields, plum and cherry trees, mountains and tea plantations. There is a small path behind the plum trees that leads to a picnic area and toilet...More

There are hundreds of onsen towns in Japan and it's your choice where to go. As an onsen fan, I go to one or even two places in a day- but I can't remember myself going to three places in a day. Transport is the main issue if you want to go to outlandish areas inland to Yubara Hot Spring, Yunogou Hot Spring and Okutsu Hot Spring (need to determine local slow rail+bus). You should research a bit about availability of day spa places or ryokans that accept day spa visitors (although I assume...More
3 Week Itinerary Check! Mar-Apr 2014 (5 Replies)
Hello! I'm planning a trip to Japan from March 20-April 10, meaning 21 days to travel around the country and do awesome things! It's my first time ever to Japan and I'm very excited. I've been working on an itinerary for the last several weeks (researching and such) and I'm starting to look at accommodation now. I'd love feedback on my itinerary so I can make any necessary changes before I start booking rooms. Also, sorry for the length! I just want to be sure that my ideas are realistic...More

14 or 21 days JR Pass is a difficult question. If you can fit the travel outside of Tokyo and its suburban areas within 14 days, then it's better as it's cheaper. However, that might be rushing through the better parts of Japan, so I think 21 days. Perhaps the better way of using the JR Pass is by landing at Narita and departing from Kansai Airport, as you'd be surely spending a few days in Tokyo (Kanto Region) and Kyoto/Nara/Osaka (the Kansai Region), and on those days the potential...More
Train Tickets Or Train Pass For Japan And Trip Plan (6 Replies)
Hi, I am planning a trip to Japan from late Mach this year and have estimated the train fares for individual tickets based on guide books and comments from Shot from my previous post ( hi Shot! you gave me a lot of fare info before , but my trip was not finalized then, the following is the final version) .

Thank you very much Shot for the fast and comprehensive response. Really appreciate it. Between your latest info and those you provided from December last year , I have a lot of ideas to work on. I will definitely try to get to Mt. Yoshino if we hit the cherry blossom season right on ( been impressed by the cherry blossom season in Japan since childhood !). Will definitely go to Okaru in Nara to watch the locals "smack their lips " tasting the local specialties. Sounds like good food...More
