as title says, it is best to go when you can see the changing of the leaves or the cherry blossoms, however the plum blossoms are just as good, and bloom just before the cherry blossoms, (march?)

What should I be writing about this garden? I would say that a wrong time to visit this garden? After reading the write ups about this garden in Okayama, me and my friend decided to visit this garden while on our way to Hiroshima.

I would say it was rather a typical garden to me, not much flowers and colors you would expect them to be like other seasons (Spring and Autumn). Mostly the plants are in green and I was hoping to see some autumn leaves but not in luck. Think we stay about an hour to walk around this garden and maybe September season is not a good time to hope for an extraordinary landscape in Korakuen. Not many visitors when we were there. People who have actually ranked this garden a top 3 in Japan, I am kinda wondering why?

The garden is smaller than we thought- but it is so pretty it is unbelievable! In contrast to other reviews here- we thought the grass and rice fields in the middle of the garden made it look so much more peaceful and pretty.

Saw the garden in the evening, which was a special event. Had a beer garden set up and candles all around. It was full moon so there were many photographers there. Needed a tripod, though.
