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.
