“Representation of Japan”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is a very interesting garden, you can see most of the Japan- garden- look here.The pond,the tree and the shrine. We spend about an hour and half to walk around this wonderful garden,including having some Japanese wine and dessert.Do not forget to see the crane,they are beautiful!

“Serene Garden.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Korakuen is a beautiful garden that is a must see if visiting Okayama.
We spent about 40 minutes there but it would be easy to spend longer if you sat down and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
If you use the tram to visit the castle or garden, get off at the third stop from the terminus on Momotaro-Odori Street. The Terminus is in front of Okayama Station ( Okayama Eki mae). Fare is 100 yen.

“Magnificent Gardens”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

These gardens are really worth visiting Okayama for. The design and layout is superb. It is a very large garden with water, cafes and tranquility. The trees are not "trained" as in many Japanese gardens, and whilst there is a sense of human exerting influence and order over nature, it is very subtle here.

“In Town? - Don't miss it”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Adjacent to the castle ( the castle stands a bit above it)
There are a lot of good reasons to use up all your photo cards.
we spent a good 3 hours here and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Highlights for us were the changes as you walked out of one area into another to something different (grassy areas into forest then to hill side with rock gardens - we were lucky they were harvesting the small rice patch - that cost us 20 minutes of watching - really a new thing for people used to broad acre or cities
Allow a good 2 ~3 hours relax and enjoy this oasis

“Four seasons need to be visited”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Breath taking, well maintained park. Each season can be enjoyed. This is my third time coming here and this time, it was full of autumn colours. Absolutely beautiful.
