"Kairakuen" is the large garden which was built in 1842 by the local lord Tokugawa Nariaki with 3,000 trees of around 100 varieties of plum blossoms. Kairakuen means "park to be enjoyed together".

A spacious park with various kind of trees. You can enjoy the park every season. I came here in autumn, taken a lot of pictures besides gingko trees line. You can see the foliage from November to early December.
