Kairaku-en Garden, literally "A park to be enjoyed together" is a Japanese garden located in Mito, Japan. Along with Kenroku-en and Koraku-en, Kairaku-en is considered one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. Built in the year 1841 by lord Tokugawa Nariaki, and though worth a visit throughout the year, the garden is at its most attractive during the plum blossom season, which takes place in early March. More than 3000 plum trees have been planted here. Besides the plum tree forest, Kairakuen also features a bamboo grove, cedar woods and the Kobuntei, a traditional Japanese style building - its name is derived from the word plum.
