Koishikawa Korakuen is a Japanese garden, and is located just northwest of JR Suidobashi station.
It was built by Yorifusa Tokugawa (1603-1661), the first lord of Mito
Domain, in 1629.
It has an area of more than 7 hactares.
There are a large pond and some small ponds with islands and rocks, additionally there are a few streams, small hills, and rice fields.
And many trees covers the whole garden.
When this garden was rebuilt by Mitsukuni Tokugawa (1628-1701), the
second lord, he got the opinions of Zhu
Shunshui (1600-1682), who was a Chinese scholar of Confucianism and
defected to Japan in 1660.
So this garden involves elements of Chinese Confucianism.
At just east of this garden, there is Tokyo Dome which is the Japan's
first domed baseball stadium.
And around the studium, there are an amusement park, a hotel and other resort facilities, so they form a resort town named "Tokyo Dome City".
