Kokoen garden, back drop is Himeji castel!
Kokoen is an authentic Japanese garden with a borrowed view of the World Heritage Site, Himeji Castle.
It is a popular place for sightseeing in Himeji.
The garden, which stretches to the southwest of Himeji Castle, covers an area of approximately 3.5 hectares.
The garden was created using the remains of the Nishi-oyashiki (built in 1618) and samurai residences.
It consists of 9 Japanese gardens, each of which is characterized by being separated from the rest of the garden by a walled enclosure.
There is “Onyashiki no Niwa” (garden of the imperial villa), a garden with a circular garden and pond.
Also “Cha no Niwa” (garden of tea ceremony), a teahouse with an authentic sukiya-style teahouse, which has been used as a location for historical dramas and historical episodes.
