    This park is in decay I think. It is really not beautiful, it looks like nobody has paid attention to cutting the grass or cleaning the water for a long while. Such a shame.  more »

    What an amazing experience here. We were lucky enough to have a local recommend this place to us. It was such a coincidence that we ended up here. This is were the locals come at night. Who said Kyoto doesn't have a night life? This place was beaming with people. There is food, drinks, scenery, and awesome people.

    I think there was a Geisha festival on when we went, everyone was dressed up and taking photos. Lots of little food stalls, loves the hotdog one the best! Very beautiful with the plum/cherry blossoms

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.
