Attraction details
Owner description: Also known as the Tokiwa garden, this land was originally a plum orchard belonging to Tokugawa Nariakira. Converted into public property in 1840 and renamed Kairakuen, this park is now recognized as one of the top three gardens in Japan.
Reviewed March 11, 2010

Around end-February to March should be the best time to visit this park as there's the plum festival! In the website they occasionally give reports on how many plums have bloomed. Around mid-march should be the best as most plums should have been bloomed. There are about 3000 plum trees in total so it's very crowded in March even on weekdays.

Across the park there is a huge pond full of various ducks so it's another attraction by itself. People feed the ducks so they oftenly rise to the ground. You can also ride boats on the pond. A lot of food is sold around the area, including the plum ice cream.
