Koishikawa Botanical Garden, located in Tokyo’s Bunkyo Ward, is a beautifully landscaped naturespace owned by Tokyo University. The garden dates back to 1684 when it was established as a medicinal herb garden for the Tokugawa shogun. The 16-hectare (40-acre) garden is home to 4,000 plant species and includes both a botanical garden and arboretum. In addition to being a public asset to the city, the garden also acts as an extension of Tokyo University where students and professionals can study and research plant life. The garden is also used to conserve and propagate endangered species.
Aside from its educational applications, the garden is a popular spot to wander and admire nature. The thousands of tree and plant species, most of which originate in eastern Asia, are immaculately sculpted into a Japanese landscape garden, making for a pleasant stroll. Enjoy camellias, maple trees, bonsai trees, plum trees, and many more!
The garden is an especially pleasant spot during cherry blossom season. Being less crowded than other venues, the garden is a relaxing spot to admire the dainty blossoms and features multiple cherry blossom species. Walk along cherry tree-lined paths or picnic under pastel petals. During autumn, visit the park to witness its vibrant red Japanese maple trees.
Admission to the garden costs 500 yen for adults and 150 yen for children.
Koishikawa Botanical Garden is about a 10- to 15-minute walk from either Myogadani Station or Hakusan Station.
