  • Maruyama Park should be high on your list of places to visit in Kyoto. We were there in November, so plenty of Autumn colour still around. A very popular place with plenty of younger Japanese dressed ...  more »
  • "Kyoto autumn not crowded" in Google's route to go find some, Maruyama Park. Foliage is bronze statues and ponds. And about a 10-minute walk from kawaramachi station access is good and definitely not crowded. However, leaves in it too?!.

  • It's beautiful. There's even a guy playing the flute with his dog. It's like the park has its own soundtrack. Dog has its own sword. Don't mess with dog.
  • Beautiful park and perfect place to relax and to stroll along. It's one of the places in Kyoto I'll recommend if you want to experience Cherry Blossoms.
  • Beautiful park. Very popular so lots of visitors and gifts/food shops. Not the quietest in Kyoto but for sure a must-have to visit.
  • A nice enough park to relax and unwind. Lots of potential but felt it was just OK. Leads to a few nearby temples. No entrance fee.
  • Very beautiful park..stroll around for a peace of mind and also good place for a Meetup and explore your photography skills munching on some special snacks...

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.
