Iris of “Koishikawa Korakuen” designated as a national special historic site and special scenic spot

2022.05.04

Koishikawa Korakuen is the oldest existing daimyo garden in the garden built in the upper mansion of the Mito domain in the early Edo period.
Approximately 660 irises are planted in the flower iris field in the park.
Colorful flowers such as white, blue, and purple are in full bloom in early June every year.

At the best time, we will set up a wooden path beside the iris field so that you can see the iris closer, and welcome customers with the title “Enjoy the irises”.
Enjoy the beautiful fresh green countryside with graceful irises in an oasis in Tokyo.
