  • This place inside is from the imperial household Agency's HP registration is required. During this season seems to be flooded with applications, but other times it never is. It is walking around the garden while listening to the explanation. Bad Guide and see the writing of the previous reputation of Mr. seems had my times in women was. Explanation a while and deeper understanding. If you have time enough time I come from the Imperial Palace, is recommended. Free of charge.

  • There was a solemn space sentō Imperial Palace Hotel located on the corner of Kyoto Imperial Palace not far from the real world was living. Said was built for Emperor mizunoo abdicated later. I heard that buildings was destroyed by fire in the garden are left intact. Suhama 111000 pieces gathered in it and will replace it with the U.S. 1 Shou cobbled paved was very beautiful.

  • Because it had been the Kyoto Imperial Palace, went on a similar image, but totally different atmosphere, very good. Personally, by far the Sento Imperial Palace is a favorite method took 40 minutes or so, our tour guide to is. Say "takes the time you take a photo in" Guide for tour time to defend, but almost ignored that voice has a very nice garden and you take photos in there, so the column on tour incredibly was long. Is it a nice place. The admission, however, to maintain this beauty takes considerable money, so I thought I should take. Free 稼genkute money at other shrines in Kyoto, the only difficult to maintain cultural heritage? Imperial household Agency, unlimited tax maybe may.

  • An real treat to see how the 'royals' pass the time of day. The tour is a little fast but it's worth making the booking. It's FREE!
  • Had a lovely guided tour through the palace - free of charge - super lush, people were really friendly
  • Really nice and ridiculously huge garden area and palace. My mate and I were just walking past as a tour was about to start and signed up. Didn't cost anything and neither did the audio guide. The sign out front said tours at 1400 and 1500
  • Just looked at it from the outside, so no idea if it is worth going in. The park around the palace is nice and when I was there it was quiet with not to many people. It is a good sport to rest from the crowds.
  • ◆ ◆ The Kyoto Imperial Palace : Known as 京都御所 Kyoto-gosho ) is the former ruling palace of the Emperor of Japan. The emperors have resided at the Tokyo Imperial Palace since 1869 (Meiji Restoration); the preservation of the Kyoto Imperial Palace was ordered in 1877. Today the grounds are open to the public, and the Imperial Household Agency hosts public tours of the buildings several times a day.The Kyoto Imperial Palace is the latest of the imperial palaces built at or near its site in the north-eastern part of the old capital of Heiankyo after the abandonment of the larger original Heian Palace that was located to the west of the current palace during the Heian Period. The Palace lost much of its function at the time of the Meiji Restoration, when the capital functions were moved to Tokyo in 1869. ◆ ◆ You can get a special invitation to view their garden which is not open to public. Free tours of Kyoto Imperial Palace are held several times daily in English and Japanese. ◆ ◆ 1. You will need a pre-authorization of the Imperial Household Agency to go on a guided tour ( both in English & Japanese ). ( 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.
