Springtime Rikugien ~ Enjoy Azalea in a Daimyo Garden
15 Apr - 7 May 2017
In Genroku period, azalea gardening became a boom in the town of Edo centered on Komagome-somei area. Rikugien, as the center of the boom, was planted with various kinds of azaleas and you can still see them until now. During the best azalea viewing season, we will hold special events such as offering azalea guide tours and displaying Edo azalea explanation panels so that you can fully enjoy Rikugien and learn the history of Edo azalea gardening. In the calm and warm weather of spring, Rikugien will be colored with bright red and purple azaleas to welcome all visitors.
