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.

可購買姬路城+好古園套票，好古園就在姬路城旁，是個美麗古典的日式庭院，值得一遊。推薦可在好古園內餐廳用餐，餐點不錯且不昂貴，可邊欣賞風景邊用餐十分愜意。 more »Can be the city of Jiji Road and good ancient tickets, good ancient park is located in Ji Lu City, is a beautiful classical Japanese courtyard, worth a visit.

姫路城の帰りに寄りました。中は日本庭園で落ち着いた雰囲気を楽しむことができました。用務員の方に暴れん坊将軍のロケ地になってることを聞いてびっくりしました。 more »I stopped by himeji castle on the way back. I was able to enjoy the calm atmosphere in the Japanese garden inside. I was surprised to hear that it was a location of the rampage general towardthe staff.
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.
