Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, Kyoto
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Happens to be open when I ask you. It was raining, but it's so atmosphere is very good. But I walk. I walk the (sweat). Just to tour several places became a stage for those who like history, so quickly that I think during the time is gone.

  • In the large park, both North and South from subway marutamachi station from Imadegawa station station 1 min. Munakata shrine located on the South side, Itsukushima-Jinja shrine, Baiyun shrine around the tour of the Kyoto Imperial Palace. The planting, care corner trash one and don't fall down. Bride and groom with wedding ceremony at a shrine had a picture.

  • 相当震撼,当你习惯于京都一个个小小的自成一派的景点的格局时,京都御苑的庄重大气无疑令人难忘。据说每年天皇夫妇还会过来居住。现在不需要预约就能参观了,不过下午四点后就不能入内。但是外围走走已经相当震撼了。
