Escape to a sanctuary of natural beauty at Koko-en Garden, a collection of Japanese gardens scattered across the grounds of Himeji Castle. Constructed in 1992, these nine gardens reflect different styles of the Edo Period and welcome visitors looking for a peaceful space to unwind. Spread across 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres), the park contains elegant bridges, flower and bamboo gardens, pristine waterfalls, and a ceremonial teahouse where you can enjoy a cup of traditionally brewed matcha or green tea. The gardens are accessed via a short walk from the castle's main entrance. Make Koko-en Garden a part of your Himeji vacation plans using our Himeji day trip planner.

Saya ke sini kerana tiketnya murah jika dibeli bersama dengan tiket Istana Himeji. Banyak taman-taman indah dengan berbagai tema. Boleh juga hadir upacara minum teh (dengan bayaran tambahan). more »I'm here because tickets are cheaper if purchased along with Himeji Castle tickets. A lot of beautiful gardens with a variety of themes. May also present tea ceremony (with additional payment).
近年では姫路城にお越しになられた海外の方の姿も多い、白漆喰真壁の庭園も美しい屋敷です。実は比較的近年に築造されたモノだけど、白鷺城と併さると何か歴史を感じやすい場所にも思えます。 真壁の築造物が一般には少ない昨今、建物を、また庭園をゆっくり眺め、ゆったりした時間を過ごしたいですね。 more »In recent years, there are many foreigners who have been to Himeji Castle, and the garden of the white plaster Makabe is a beautiful mansion. In fact, it was relatively construction in recent years, but it also seems to be a place that is easy to feel the history and Shirasagi Castle. I want to spend a leisurely time looking at the building and the garden slowly in the makabe of the construction thing in general recently.
Visited during spring time, the wind was so very cooling and relaxing. Add that to the beauty of the garden. It was so relaxing that I wanted to take a nap right in the garden! The stair climbing in Himeji Jo nearby helped to build the mood for nap taking too.
Beautiful Japanese garden with tea house inside. It's just a few minutes from Himeji Castle and also you can buy combined ticket for both places. There are several parts with water, bamboo trees etc. If you ever imagined Japanese garden this one is definitely meets your imagination. In the middle there is a tea house so for 500 yens you can get traditional tea with sweet.
