  • It is a famous gate seems to have moved location and at that time was the weird stage of the Hamaguri rebellion of the Tokugawa shogunate. Located in the West of the Imperial Palace, so when I went to Kyoto Gyoen, and stop.

  • It really looks nice, but so do the other gates that are part of the palace. So I don't know why this one has to be on trip advisor specifically.  more »
  • In the gate area of the Kyoto Imperial Palace "Hamaguri rebellion" which happened 4 years of the Meiji Restoration, in 1864. The previous Kyoto coup up mired in choshu-Han will likely kicked from Kyoto. Choshu domain in spirited here, he was responsible for the Kyoto protector Aizu clan and (at that time was before the formation of the satchō Alliance) lost the fighting soldiers of the Satsuma clan was at loggerheads with the choshu clan.  During that time, known as a student of Yoshida pine shade disciple Kusaka Gen sui had killed. Some remain pockmarked tells clam Gyo, still at that time of intense gunfire. However had been standing, keep in mind that current gate facing the gosho on Karasuma-Dori West stand, but at that time got a little inside. In was moved here after the restoration.  However don't worry from the ruins of the gate itself, the bullet is real. See also the Imperial Palace on the South side "Sakai city gate" If you visit here, I think. This gate was guarded by choshu-Han.  So lost in the "battle of clam Gyo" choshu domain tried gatherings last stand in the gate area, but end up defeated. Daimyō of Satsuma domain was incidentally against the location of the company now, choshu clan in Sanjo was near a boat on one (currently, stands the hotel). See "Hamaguri rebellion" is the Satsuma clan across the Imperial Palace was opposed in the South North of the Imperial Palace and signified by the choshu clan civil war comes into view.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
