#14 of 77 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.

  • They are the gardens that are in the vicinity of the Imperial Palace, so a visit to the latter can be combined with a walk by here. The gardens are very good care, and are aesthetically pretty cute.
