We visited the place maybe a week after the best Sakura time, in the beginning of April. There was still many trees in blooming colors. It was a really nice park to enjoy and wonder around in for many hours. Just enjoying a nice day.

Great place and interesting tours. The only negative is that some idiots in the administrations didn't realize that gasoline leaf blowers totally ruin the atmosphere and the rarely good air that's in the park. この間京都御苑へ行かせて頂きました。とても素敵なところでした。ツアーもとても良かったです。しかし、公演を出る時に出口のところで少しだけ葉っぱがあったところをガソリン式リーフブロワーを使っていた方がいました。もちろん、そのせいで空気も臭くなったし(私達の肺にとって毒ですし)、何よりも調和と平和のはずの京都御苑の公演はリーフブロワーなんかとんでもないもので台無しじゃないですか?だいたい、レーキなんかで2分で片付けられる葉っぱを、あれだけ騒音おかして、せっかくの良い空気をひどくして、訪れるみんなに迷惑をかけて、意味があるのですか?だれかガソリン式リーフブロワーを使うって決めたのは解りませんが、最悪の提案じゃないですか?良いこと一つもないのに、大変な効果ばっかりですね。是非考え直すことをお願いしたいと思います。レーキを使って頂きたいか、どうしてもリーフブロワーを使うのなら電子式のものにして下さい。そうすると、騒音も何倍も少ないし、空気も悪くなりません。。。。でもやはり、京都御苑の公演みたいな所では昔ながらのレーキで丁寧に葉っぱを片付けたほうが一番いいと思います。お願いします、考え直して下さい。本当はどちらのほうが正しい良いアイディアですか?

Such a beautiful park to explore. I enjoyed meeting some of the locals walking their dogs here. The distinctive song of the cicada was everywhere!

Gardens are amazing. Very close proximity of other monuments, so its impossible to skip the gardens. Wear some comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella. The garden does have some pretty good photo spots, so enjoy!

Took a leisure morning walk at the Kyoto Gyoen (Kyoto Imperial Palace Park) today. This huge park surrounds the Kyoto Imperial Palace. It was so relaxing and the air was so fresh.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of

The best autumn leaves in Kyoto is the end of November. The first week of December is also nice. It will be easy to book a hotel in December.
