Mukōjima-Hyakkaen Garden is a garden/park that was constructed over a 26 year period (1804-1830). It began life as the private garden of an antique dealer named Kikū Sahara. Having obtained the cooperation of various men of letters, Mr. Sahara proceeded to accumulate and plant those flowers which featured in classical Japanese and Chinese literature. Even though the garden was designed to appeal to the masses, its construction reflected the cultural philosophy of a number of scholars. In 1938, its owner donated the garden to the city of Tokyo, whereupon it became the admission charged garden that it is today.
People can visit the garden and enjoy viewing over 200 different species of plant life. Inside, it is possible to view the Japanese plum blossom tree, Japanese clover, Japanese wisteria, the Japanese iris and more. Every year, February-March is the ‘ume’ or ‘Japanese plum’ season and an accompanying Japanese plum festival is held at the garden. The garden hosts a number of events every season.
