  • The cherry blossoms are lit up in temples and temples here and there, but i take a good price everywhere. Maruyama Park, famous for its cherry blossoms, is free, but it's just a banquet hall. Here, the road along the river is lined with cherry trees, so you can enjoy it while strolling. There are a lot of people, but there is a atmosphere, too and it is possible to enjoy it at the time other than cherry blossoms.

  • There is no garbage, and the clear shallow river is calm and wonderful. I missed the time of cherry blossoms, but i thought that I wanted to go at all the time of spring, summer, autumn, and winter, and the fresh green was wonderful. There are quite a few tourists, but it's still worth a walk!

  • A lovely area to visit both during the day and night. Enjoy strolling through big and small alleys in the dark and finding hidden gems between restaurants, tea houses and hopefully not too many tourists (if you go a bit away from the popular center). Be sure not to bother the rare fleeting geiko/maiko you might encounter!
  • Best during cherry blossom season. But off season it's just a quaint quiet short stroll by a small river.
