  • It is a very nice Park, which is located at the rear of the temples of the Higashiyama area. It gives for a pleasant walk in a green and very quiet place.

  • See the mountains behind the Aru Japan garden continues to back the Yasaka Shrine in the weeping cherry trees there. Yasaka Shrine and tourists is a lively, but Maruyama Park is winter tourists, quietly enjoyed.

  •  Maruyama Park was opened in the 0/1886 of Kyoto's oldest park is. I stopped by after we visited to Chion from Yasaka Shrine en route. So, this park is North Chion and West dealing and the Yasaka Shrine. In a large park-based Japan gardens, restaurant and teahouse, dotted with the lame not far off. Also, is is famous as Kyoto's cherry blossoms.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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...
