The Garden Landscape Guide

Korakuen Garden

The Koishikawa  Korakuen Garden was designed in 1626, by Tokudaiji Sahyoe, for Yorifusa, a member of the Tokugawa family. The garden has a large lake with a planned stroll along which one can see representations of famous landscape scenes from China and Japan. An island in the lake has a temple dedicated to Benzaiten, an Indian goddess associated with good luck. A Full-Moon Bridge has half its circle from the stonework and the other half from its reflection in the water. A green hill represents Mount Atago
