Japan -> TOKYO -> Koishikawa Korakuen Garden
Koishikawa Korakuen Garden    TOKYO, Tokyo Prefecture

Koishikawa Korakeun Garden was created in 1629 and took 30 years to complete. It belonged to the Mito branch of the Tokugawa family and was once four times its present size of 20 acres (8 hectares). Korakuen means 'garden of pleasure last,' and originates from a Chinese poemYueyang Castle: "Be the first to take the world's trouble to heart, be the last to enjoy the world's pleasure." The garden, designed by exiled Chinese scholar Zhu Shun Shui, is meant to represent larger landscapes on a miniature scale. It is one of Tokyo's best traditional stroll gardens.
