Maruyama Park Reviews
В старейший парк Киото мы не могли не зайти, тем более его жемчужиной является храм Ясака. Пришли уже под вечер, хотя лотки с подкормкой пришедшего люда работали вовсю. Что сказать...особых восторгов ... more »In the oldest park in Kyoto, we could not help but go, especially its jewel is the temple of Yasaka. They came in the evening, though the trays with feeding of the people who had come were working in full. What to say... There are no special delights, although the park is quite pleasant. It was opened in 1886 and 800 cherry blossoms and, among them, the famous "Gion" cherry tree were planted on its territory. But we did not get to the cherry blossoms, it was in the first days of November. The riot of colors in the crowns of trees was already gaining strength, but did not reach its climax. So I won't put the highest ball, but not bad, not bad.
近隣アジア諸国からの観光客で賑わっている円山公園ですが、朝早く散歩すれば人気も少なく静かです。以前は土曜日の午後には明らかに不倫だ、というカップルが見受けられたのですが、観光客に押され壊滅しています。清水からの道には、パパからの誘いかおねだりか、観光している鼻の下を延ばしっぱなしのおじさんと、出せるだけ絞ってやると気合の入ったお水のカップルもたくさんいたんですが。騒々しい雰囲気ではね・・。 more »Maruyama Park is crowded with tourists from neighboring Asian countries, but if you take a walk early in the morning, it is less popular and quiet. The couple was previously seen saying it was an affair on Saturday afternoon, but they were pushed by tourists and destroyed. On the road from Shimizu, there were a lot of uncles who had been extending under their noses, whether they were asking for invitations from their dads, and a couple of water that was motivated to squeeze as much as they could. In a noisy atmosphere.
It is one of the best place to visit during spring. Beautiful cherry blossom trees are everywhere. There are also many places to sit down and relax. You can get beer and food from street restarants. A lot to see and good place to spend time with friends and family. A lot of photo spots too.
I went during winter, so the autumn leaves were all but gone. However, this is a very good place to see them when in season. There are food stalls if you're hungry, and you can proceed to the main park area for some very nice photos. This is a small walk from the main Gion shopping street, so definitely give this place a visit.
