Koko-en Garden


Koko-en garden is located just beside the Himeji castle, and while the castle is always crowded with visitors and tourists, it seems most people did not pay a visit to this beautiful garden.

True to the Japanese garden philosophy, Koko-en is not a colourful flower garden, but more akin to serene landscaping mastery. The garden consists of 9 smaller gardens with their own theme, from bamboo groove, to the ponds. 

When we were there, winter just started, and the garden lost most of its vibrancy, especially the spring and autumn colour. Having said that, it was still such a beautiful place that you need to visit when you have the chance.
