  • Left behind many famous mountains of Kyoto Prefecture, Ariake. I think the slightly lower perspective views of your garden while sitting on the veranda in the first room of the main house or better. I visited was a lunchtime drizzle of rose, Japan Garden wet stone and MOSS on a rainy day is a rather beautiful. With fewer visitors, calm could stroll through the garden. On the way back at the Pavilion next to the gourd got shokado-Bento "40 years Buri.

  • On kicking off most tourists heading to Nanzenji Temple, is a small but special here. Entering the tiny wicket and there's another world. You forget the bus roof you see once in a while and look at the road to the other side of the fence, is calm. Guests can enjoy spectacular Japan gardens. Next door is a gourd-Tei.

  • The convenient location is smaller in scale, but rather weak tourists. Walking was staying in a Westin hotel and staff I think fewer people then the 3-day weekend of the autumn season. There per side a red wood there is a beautiful colored photos was about to take.

  • 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.

  • It is a villa of the Meiji era. This region was famous as a vacation home. I of the Bik hotel is a building like the following. And also some views. By all means stop by.
