  • 八坂神社後面就是圓山公園, 可以賞紅葉! 公園很廣闊, 就算遊客比較多亦不會感覺很擁擠! 景色漂亮, 可以在這裡慢活半天, 喝口茶, 慢慢拍照。  more »
  • Bamboo put a candle in the Maruyama Park River was directing the magical atmosphere. Right near the flowers and lit up, there's lots.

  • I came during late March of 2016. Just at the onset of the cherry blossom season. Maruyama Park is one of the best places to see cherry blossoms in Kyoto, along with the Philosopher's Walk. During the time I was here, the trees had started blossoming, to a level of maybe 30-40%. It was beautiful. And I could only imagine how much more ethereal if blooms are at a level of 90% up. The park is spacious and feels very comfortable to be in. Came during both day time and night time. Different experiences. In the day time, I could see all the trees and flowers in entirety. But at night, some of the trees are lit by spotlights which made the cherry blossoms appear to float in the dark. So amazing. During the night time, food peddlers dot around the park.So, it is quite festive during the blooming season. Highly recommended.
  • Nice park! The paths don't have a ton of shade. Lots of Pokemon players :) there were some really cool birds and fish around the ponds. We came on a really hot day. It would be a lot nicer in the spring / fall.
  • Nice little park in between Yasuka shrine and Chion-in.
  • Caught a Dratini here. The park itself is really nice too and was a great place to come through on the way to see all the shrines
  • One of the most wonderful parks in Kyoto, the best place for an enchanting walk! Here you have the chance to see a open-air Japanese theatrical show or admire gorgeous Japanese gardening arrangements.
