Kokoen Garden, Himeji Reviews

  • Not a huge garden, divided into many mini gardens, each made in different style. Standing somewhat in the shadow ( figuratively) of Himeji castle, it's a very worthwhile stop to rest after climbing all the stairs in the castle. To save money get a combo ticket of garden plus castle

  • One of the great things about Japan is how well they do gardens. If you are a garden aficionado then you must visit this. If you aren't a fan of Japanese gardens you can give this a miss.

  • Worth the visit if you’re going to Himeji anyway, entrance fee is basically waived if you buy the Himeji ticket. Very beautiful serene garden that seems to never end.

  • Japanese garden as its best. A beautiful garden, which is actually more than 13 different little gardens. Each has a different theme and more beautiful than the others, can not tell which one is the most beautiful.

  • An absolutely superb set of gardens just past Himejijo. Beautiful in both the spring and autumn, and much quieter than the castle grounds.
