  • This is the imperial villa was Imperial property up to before World War II. In the episode present Emperor had been evacuated during the war, such as modern history is relatively important. Quietly in a grove of the is about a 15-minute walk from Nikko mountains full of people, but is. A Kyoto Imperial Palace, old Samurai residences and buildings with interesting patchwork of classical architecture. State-owned property as compared to admission, is exceptional. Visit old buildings like.

  • I visited in early April, but also less seen slowly. Also, pictures nothing in pictures free too good for that, took a photo of the family hallway can take satisfaction was. It was about an hour but did not have time. If you take the photo, including garden and look I want at least 2 hours. Wear warm clothes because it cools the room although a little better.

  • 搭乘公車在田母澤御用邸紀念公園站下車,非常方便就能到達此景點,門口的警衛和收票人員也非常親切,指導我們需要拖鞋入內,以及寄放行李的方式。進入這棟美麗的建築參觀,真的是非常傳統的日式建築,不虧是日本人,維護的非常乾淨整齊漂亮,而且參訪的路線也非常流暢,不時有服務人員可以指導我們參訪的正確路線,另外,還遇到一個服務人員告訴我庭院外面有一顆四百年的櫻花樹,可惜還沒到春暖花開的季節啊,不然我想滿開的時候一...  more »

  • Beautiful Villa and gardens. Make sure to get the audio tour to learn a little about the villa and the recent renovations. It's worthwhile seeing.
  • Stunning residence and history. Beautiful gardens. Quaint town.
  • Visited the place at the end of July (just at the beginning of the summer vacation). The place was not crowded at all and I was able to enjoy both the garden and the interior of the villa. If you arrive in the morning you might be able to catch the free guided tour (in japanese).
  • Just down the road from Toshogu Shrine and opened to the public in just recent years, this overlooked palace is spacious and beautiful. Visitors are free to walk around the entire building and many displays have English explanations. The surrounding grounds and gardens are beautiful as well.
  • Visited this place in December and there was still some snow around the garden. It was very interesting seeing the interior, but the highlight of the visit was the surrounding garden. Spent a good 30 minutes wondering around the landscaped garden. Highly recommended if you are in the area.
