#12 of 78 in Parks in Kyoto
An old imperial palace-turned-park, Kyoto Gyoen National Garden makes a good place for a long walk under trees in the midst of an ancient capital city. Several shrines scattered around the park provide a surprise factor for curious walkers strolling among cherry trees, magnolias, and plum trees in this well-kept area. Children can burn off steam in a playground with swings and sandboxes, while joggers and cyclists can exercise on gravel and grassy paths. You'll find public restrooms and vending machines across the park. Arrange to visit Kyoto Gyoen National Garden and other attractions in Kyoto using our Kyoto tour planner.

  • Kyoto Imperial Palace outside the official home, the public leisure mansion after the demolition into today's Royal garden, is a large park, there are plum blossoms, peach blossoms, cherry flowers, maple leaves can be appreciated. I was in the early March to visit the plum blossom season, although the other Meijing in Kyoto have been opened, but the most famous black wood plum in the Royal Garden is only about five points, not enough wonderful, stroll around Merlin and leave.

  • When I visited before, a big tree fell down because it was after a typhoon, and if I thought that it might take time, it was almost tidy up if it said only to the West who entered the Imperial palace. The flower also starts blooming with Tihora, and the footstep of spring seems to be heard gradually.
