Kōraku-en is a Japanese garden located in Okayama.. It is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, along with Kenroku-en and Kairaku-en. Korakuen was built in 1700 by Ikeda Tsunamasa, lord of Okayama. The album has a lovely set of bookmark colorized postcards collected by Raja that tell us how lovely the garden looked more that 75 years ago!
Your Album is a great treasure, Ashok! ValerieReplyDelete
