Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, Kyoto

4.4
#14 of 64 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.

  • It's autumn leaves can enjoy widely also in the landscape to find may be difficult. Several walks in the beautiful autumn leaves. To see the inside, slowly. The image is 12/3.

  • Various trees and flowers can be enjoyed throughout the year. Landscape is recommended, especially during this season, compared to the sights of Kyoto's other many people but especially from 11 at the end of and the beginning of December, Ginkgo leaves, the Concierge is very good. Ginkgo in the Northwest corner area is off the beaten path and is especially great.

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.
