Plum flowers tells about spring in Mito. Speaking of Japan, it is cherry trees? But before this plum informs us that spring will come. Kairaku-en is a famous place for its plum and also counted as one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan together with Kenroku-en in Kanazawa and Korakuen in Okayama. The park with 3,000 trees of about 100 kinds of plums growing here is perfect for strolling. As an urban park it is proud to be the second largest park in the world after Central Park in America. Another feature is that you can enjoy watching plums during long period including early flowering, middle flowering and late flowering plum. In some seasons maybe you could even see combination of snow and plum. Kairaku-en is also registered as Japan Heritage.
