  • I only discovered this garden this year after many stays in Kyoto and definitely worth the visit. Simply beautiful in autumn, this garden is a villa of the era Meiji, so Western-style, having welcomed a few important political meetings at the time, which today leads to a small museum not uninteresting. The garden, in addition to being beautiful, is a quiet welcome compared to the major sights of Kyoto with the influx in recent years makes the sometimes painful visit. In short, a perfect place to discover the art of Japanese Gardens in a relaxing atmosphere.

  • Murin-an ( Villa ) 無鄰菴 : When you get a chance to visit Keage or Okazaki area in Sakyo-ku. This is a hidden place with a beautiful garden called Murin-an. The place is located just across the narrow path on the west side of Kyoto International Community House. The garden was built in the late 18th century ( Meiji Period ) by Yamagata Aritomo who was an important figure in the politics and military affairs of the Meiji Period. It is an example of a classical Japanese promenade garden of the Meiji Period. Murin-an used to be a private villa of Yamagata Aritomo. The origin of its name " Mu 無 = non + Rin = next to 隣 + An = a hermitage いおり " meaning the house was built in isolation and there is no house built next to the property. ● Hours : 9:00a.m.-4:30p.m. ● Access : 7 min walk from Subway Tozai Line to "Keage". Fee :350 yen ( Trans-word+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
  • Good place to visit
  • Wonderful place! Beautiful landscape and sense of peace. It's really the sense of Japan. Worth to see if you want to know something more about Japanese soul.
  • Known as one of the masterpieces of modern Japan garden is relatively free. The rhythmic sound of the Brook good feelings. It is time time drinking tea here is exceptional.
