Built in 1700 by Ikeda Tsunamasa, this traditional Japanese garden is the most popular site in Okayama and famous for its view of Okayama Castle. Along with Kenroku-en Garden and Kairaku-en Garden, it is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. Koraku-en Garden was designed in the Kaiyu-style, a scenic promenade style which gives the visitor a new view at every turn of the path.
