Korakuen garden, Okayama
Okayama Korakuen Garden is considered to be one of the three best gardens in Japan since the Edo Period. I find one unique aspect of this garden in comparison to many others in Japan is the openness of it. Although you can never see an entire Japanese garden from one angle, much of Korakuen is flat, so you can see a large amount of the garden without many obstructions from a variety of angles. There are so many great angles for viewing various parts of the garden! Korakuen is beautiful and worthy of its status!
