  • This park is worth visiting. There are also a Aquarium and Train Museum,and the a genuine steam train which you actually can get on and it run in short distance! Hand made craft market is hold at once in a month (First Saturday 9AM-4PM) In the market all the products are shops owner's own work .handmade staff!
  • 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!
  • Kyoto Railway Museum is located here. Wonderful Museum with the complete history of rail in Japan, hands on displays lots of Locos and models
  • Nice place to relax if you have some spare time in kyoto!

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.
