Kairakuen is one of three beautiful gardens in Japan as well as Kenrokuen in Kanazawa and Kourakuen in Okayama and was founded in 1842 by Nariaki Tokugawa, the ninth feudal lord of Mito.

In a vast park (Approx. 13 ha), about 100 types of plum trees (3,000 trees in total) are planted and many people visit for seeing plum trees in early spring.
Kairakuen is famous for plum trees, but there are plenty to see through all seasons, such as cherry blossoms in spring, green Phyllostachys edulis and cedar forest in mid summer, deep-red Kirishima-tsutsuji (azalea) in early summer and flowers of bush clover and colored leaves in autumn.
