Kokoen Garden - Review

Kokoen Garden is a large collection of Japanese Gardens that is located within the premises of Himeji Castle. There is a Japanese water garden, tea ceremony garden, evergreen garden , bamboo garden and flower garden. The place is one where you can flock to every season and will find something new to look and admire each time. Established in 1991, the place is a favoured destination of Japan’s many top artists and nature lovers. For those visiting with family, spending some time here is must. Come to watch its attractive tea houses where you can have a cup of traditional tea amidst a nice ambience. For an artist, a trip to the place is full of adventure and inspiration.

Kokoen Garden, Himeji Reviews

  • Lovely gardens in traditional Japanese and Zen styles there seems to be about 13 sections all differently laid out and styled. Beautiful colours and use of water and stone. Also good restaurant in centre. As others say buy combo ticket and allow 1 to 2 hours.

  • Beautiful garden built in 1992. Made of more than 10 small gardens exploring the Japanese flora. Inside there is a Teahouse. For 5 dollars you can experience tea and sweet in a traditional style

  • I have never seen such a beautiful and well designed garden in my life. Japanese Zen gardens are truly one of a kind. I'm sure there might be better ones out there but this one is top notch. It's quite hot in summer to enjoy it (July) but at least the plants are in full bloom, I expect autumn to be even more beautiful and enjoyable (Sep to Nov). Buy it with the Himeji castle ticket to get a huge discount (less than 100 yen)!

  • This garden is actually a succession of multiple gardens, with a main amazing garden with a beautiful pond and bridges offering different angles for your senses to enjoy. Then follows a series of walled gardens, each focusing on a certain theme. This place offers various adaptations of what is so enjoyable with Japanese gardens. A must see in Himeji!

  • Traditional Japanese garden... Best time to visit park is cherry blossoms... Beautiful garden .. must go.. if u visiting himeji castle then u can buy combo from from castle and visit this park for 40yen.. 10 min walking from castle
