Koko-en Garden @ Himeji

Date: 8 April 2016

After the visit to the majestic Himeji Castle, I walked out to Koko-en Garden (好古園) which is just right beside the castle grounds.


The garden opened in 1992 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Himeji. It was constructed on the west residence of the feudal lord (Nishi-Oyashiki) and consists of 9 different gardens.


The garden is designed in the Edo-period garden styles and features ponds, bridges, bamboos, pine trees and tea houses.


I will let the pictures do the talking.

Garden of the Lord Residence



That’s a lot of human labor



The admission fee is 300 yen, but combined with Himeji Castle is 1040 yen (the castle’s admission fee is 1000 yen).
