Historic Walking Area
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. Our Kyoto travel itinerary planner makes visiting Kyoto Gyoen National Garden and other Kyoto attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great and beautiful park that is cared and embellished. You can see all the work that has been put in to get the Park to watch as it looks. Very peaceful and quiet place, too.

  • Charming garden with plum (Japanese apricot), peach and cherry blossoms. Surprisingly not too crowded - so I'd say it's worth a visit!
  • Very lovely and relaxing place. The amount of sakura tree in here is so damn high. Unfortunately, when i was here, the sakura were not blooming yet.
  • Very peaceful and nice garden to visit other than the imperial palace. The park is big enough to take at least 1.5 his of walking.
  • Not crowed, beautiful view, fresh atmosphere.
  • It's an awesome place if is spring or Autumn
