During Sakura, the main attraction of this park is a huge cherry tree in its center. It is lit up at night and is quite a sight to behold. Locals picnic nearby to enjoy the flowers. Without the cherry blossoms though, there is nothing particularly...More

Just missed the cherry blossoms but nonetheless a beautiful, tranquil and picturesque park to have a leisurely stroll in. Came by a pond with some swimming turtles. Very peaceful. Allowed us a nice rest before heading towards Gion.

Being cherry blossom season, the path was lined with food vendors selling beer, drinks, yakitori, ikayaki, takoyaki and lots of snacks. The park was packed with locals most of them picnicking under the cherry trees. Clearly, everyone seemed to be enjoying the spring sunshine and...More

Just behind the Yasaka Shrine, no admission fee required to enter both places, nice shrine with food stalls and some chargeable show (ghost house). The park is calm, beauty, perfect place for picnicking.

We were right at the end of the Cherry Blossoms season. So none of the iconic sights of the weeping trees. The Garden still is nice but nothing special by Japanese standards

Entrance to this park is through Yasaka shrine. Its famous for the weeping cherry blossom tree in the park. A must see if in the area. Entrance is free.

Lovely park to stroll around for night hanami, but stay away from the foodstands (mediocre at best). There are quiet areas with cherry blossoms if you want to get away from the crowds.

Very busy as expected for hanami but lovely nonetheless. Many stalls were set up to add to the hanami festivities and I highly recommend getting the sakura mochi ice cream before it sells out!
