We visited during the hottest summer on record and apart from the fact that the heat made standing in the sun unbearable, this place was definitely worth the trip. Like a number of shrines and palaces in Japan, this place is free to visit and...More
This park is very large so if you intend on seeing all of it take good shoes and comfortable clothing. We visited to visit the imperial palace, and found it quite hard to navigate at times.
We were there very early (8.20am) and none of...More
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？
We usually go to this park daily it's so close to our hotel Brighton hotel and we enjoy walking in the green with so perfect Organization and so quite garden and romantic
We usually spent 2 hours walking at the garden and free entry
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!
This is one of my favourite parks in Japan. I find this park very peaceful. It is quite large however it is beautiful walking around, exploring the different areas, tress, flowers, etc. We were there at the end of cherry blossom season and it was...More
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
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
