Koishikawa Korakuen

One day, i had a fieldtrip with my environment and landscape of Japan class to Koishikawa Korakuen. It is one of great public parks in Japan. It is located in Tokyo, near to Tokyo Dome. The nearest station are Iidabashi Eki and Suidabashi Eki. The entry tiket is 300 JPY per person. I can say this entry fee is quite cheap, although there are also some parks which do not require entry fees.
At the first time, i was thinking it would be boring there. But then, i found a fact that it was not boring at all.
This parks was made by Mito's family in many years ago. There was also a mansion but now it had changed into Baseball Stadium.
What makes this park interesting is there are a lot of histories or stories behind the architecture of the park. If you come to Tokyo, i suggest you to arrange your time, go there and don't forget to hire a guide so that you will know all the stories behind them.
Among many things there, i found two interesting things, they are male stone and female stone. Haha. I don't know why but at the time i found them, i laugh. Here i put the photos of that stones.

Anyway, now i'm watching the ballroom dancer practising in front of me. It's so interesting. I wonder if i could dance like them too. Hehe.
