  • From 天授-an Temple Mikado South Main Street West, minutes, Deva Street crossing and turned back, there is a small entrance to this temple. Villa was built by Yamagata aritomo instructions is compared to the garden was built from the existing feudal chinzan-so their gardens, exceptionally bright, airy place is impressive.

  • This is a special place of natural beauty and gentle sounds.
  • 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 )

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.
