Something Long And Complicated visits Mito, Japan šŸ‡ÆšŸ‡µ

Ibaraki is a beautiful place to see all that the autumn season has to offer in Japan, but there are many other places to take a break this fall. I have listed the 100 best waterfalls in Japan and am in the top 10 of my list of the best waterfalls in Tokyo. Sources: 13, 14, 15

There are Japan’s three famous waterfalls, Tokyo’s three famous waterfalls – Takahama Falls, Shibuya Falls, and Shizuoka Falls – and their respective waterfalls. Sources: 12

If you have a Japan Rail Pass, you can reach the garden by taking the Joban Line from Mito Station. The Oarai – Kashima line runs from Oarsai Taiyo via Mio Station to Mita Station, from where it travels to Kashimas Stadium and then on to Kashima Jingu. If you don’t, take the Japan Railway (JR) Joba Line or Tokyo Metro (JMM) to Oara Station and then to Jura Station. Sources: 1, 7

You can also visit the Ibaraki Tenshin Memorial and the Izura Museum, founded by Okakura Tenshin, who also founded the University of Arts in Tokyo. The garden is open to the public as many Japanese gardens have been in the past, and Kairakuen Kodokan Hall (which used to house the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art and Japan Art Museum) is a notable landmark. Together with Kenrokuen Kanazawa and Korakuen Okayama, K airyokuen is one of only a handful of gardens in Japan with its own museum. Sources: 6, 8, 10, 15

The museum sections are divided into four sections and the exhibits begin with the days of primitive food collectors and continue through the violent Edo era, when the Tokugawa clan gained importance, to the modern era, when the urban mito was emerging. The Museum of Modern Art also houses a collection of works by European and Japanese artists, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, ceramics and other works of art from around the world. You can also explore some of Japan’s most famous art galleries, such as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum and Japan Art Museum, as well as a number of other museums in Tokyo. Sources: 1, 2, 5

Mori is betting on a decidedly traditionalist variant of the ume – matsuri, which began in February. Look for souvenir shops such as the Shibuya Mito Museum and the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art to get souvenirs from your time in Daigo. Sources: 11, 14

Mito Castle changed hands several times and was conquered by a daimyo named Satake Yoshinobu in the mid-16th century, but had to be handed over to Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1603. From the Edo period (16.03 – 1867), the castle was controlled by Tokugsawa Yorifusa, the founder of the Mito clan, who played a key role in supporting and strengthening the TokUGawa shogunate, which was based in Edos in what is now Tokyo. The Mitogaku Mita School was a group of samurai who built up as a defense against the shameful encroachments of the West and had the power to bring about the Meiji restoration and the establishment of Japan’s first post-war government. Sources: 4, 9, 16

Mito has a modest but thriving tourism industry centred around a local museum dedicated to the Tokugawa family. He was a great reformer and wanted to drive the transformation of the country, and if he were to leave, Mito would certainly be able to do so. But his ability to reform Japan to compete with the West was limited. Sources: 4, 16

If you love nature, there are many places to visit and enjoy the scenery, such as Fuji National Park, Mount Fuji and the waterfalls of Kyushu Ryu. It is close enough to Tokyo for a day trip, but has plenty of opportunities to explore on a long weekend or more. Look out for beautiful ocean views, including the Great Wall of China and its surroundings, as well as some of Japan’s most beautiful mountains. Sources: 3, 15

Surrounded by large natural parks, one could forget that this is the Kanto region or even Japan. Ibaraki is home to a huge amount of nature and history that attracts people from all over Japan and the world. Where you can find some of Japan’s most popular restaurants as well as a variety of traditional foods, it is a perfect place to find those unique gifts and traditional flavors that the big cities simply cannot offer. Sources: 3, 13, 14

The prefecture is famous for its Kashima Antlersbebe, fermented soybeans, but Mito is also a great place to get fed up with some of the city’s friendly restaurants that offer full natto dishes. Sources: 0, 1, 3

The Baji Koen Equestrian Park was built for the equestrian competitions of the 1964 Olympic Games and is now operated by the Japan Racing Association. Kashima Jingu and Kashimas Antlers maintain an unbreakable informal bond here. Sources: 11, 15

This amazing wisteria plant was transplanted to the city by the first tree researcher in Japan who carried out her research in this city. This park houses over 100 ancient plum trees, which create a “Japanese atmosphere” that is different from the plum trees in a Japanese garden. It is an excellent idea to plan a trip to see the cherry blossoms of Japan (plum blossoms could also be interesting).
