    Rather than pay facilities such as aquariums and Railroad Museum, has a range of facilities and free 10-minute play. Glad I exposed the precious car of Kyoto City tram was made out of the situation is worrying

    At work arrived in Kyoto! Arrived in the room, so I went to the umekoji Park within walking distance from the station. Still hot staff, good place, somehow. Quite amazing that SL was running. Close to the Aquarium and Railroad Museum and enjoy one day. Green so you can cool off on a bench in the shade of a tree. Children's play equipment and a water play area, wider than expected. Fall is beautiful leaves, is enjoyed. Because it is a relaxing space is recommended

    This could be a nice park but it seemed very run down and uncared for. In such a nice location this is a pity. Still, we sat for a while and watched the trains passing by including the Shinkasen in th...  more »

    Two things for children: the playground has a roller slide and a good climbing frame. The river section is fun to splash in. Beware that we found a few small leeches on us on exiting.

    A beautiful, lively park nestled right next to the Kyoto Aquarium! You can get ice cream here and the vending machine selection is the best I have seen in Kyoto! Kids are typically playing in the pond nearby. I only wish there were more trees, but the sakura here were earlier than the rest this year!

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.
