Ritsurin-koen garden in Takamatsu, Japan

Located on the slopes of Mt Shiun, Ritsurin-koen (栗林公園) is astonishingly beautiful. It dates back to the 17th century, built for the feudal lord of Sanuki.

The park houses several lakes, islands, bridges and teahouses (of which Kikugetsu-tei offers a recommendable tea ceremony). The main lake/pond is filled with large Koi fish, which gather near bridges to be fed by tourists.
