Take a pleasant stroll through Kairakuen Park, a large Japanese garden offering some natural relief from the urbane surroundings. Considered one of the three great gardens of Japan, the park's name translates as "a park to be enjoyed together," indicative of the fact that it was, unlike the other two, always designed to be enjoyed by the local populace. Opened in 1841, the gardens display white, pink, and red plum blossom trees, a bamboo grove, cedar wood, and a traditional Japanese building in the center. Plan a trip to Mito easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Kairakuen Park Reviews
斉昭公が偕に楽しむ園として開園した三大名園の一つ。思ったいた以上にでかいのに驚きました。 梅の咲き誇る季節にまた来たいです。 more »It is one of the three great great-name gardens that were opened as a garden that Saiaki ko enjoyed. I was surprised at how big it was than I had expected. I want to come again in the season when the plum tree blooms.
５月に訪れたため、人はほとんどいないし、少々さみしい。梅の木はたくさんありましたが、シーズンではない。訪れるのなら、やはり梅の季節ですね。 more »Since I visited in May, there are few people and i am a little lonely. There were a lot of plum trees, but it's not the season. If you visit, it's still the season of plums.
Though it was barren in January the layout, grounds and buildings were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful staff! Thank you
Beautiful place with a lot of nature and flowers. Much more massive that you would expect. Probably makes it worth a trip to Mito if its during the plum blossom or cherry blossom season. This photo doesn't do it justice, but you can kind of see how big it is at least.
