We entered the park through the Yasaka shrine. After the bustle of the shrine there was the tranquility of the park, picturesque with the autumnal turning of the leaves , ever surprising colours around every corner. Just your own pace and rest. Enjoyable and recharging.

Good spot to sit and stroll, without many crowds. Felt relaxing after the busy shrines. Ducks and carp in the ponds. We tried to cut through to Chion-in Temple but had to retrace our steps down the hill, which was a shame. Google maps is...More

There were a lot of people visiting this park when I was here but as I went deeper into the park, the crowd reduced and I found myself alone most of the time deep in the park.

Lovely place to take a breather when walking between temples, plenty of seating fish ponds bridges and of course Kyotos oldest cherry blossom tree. Wish that we had come a touch earlier in the year I bet that it was stunning.

Although the park itself is beautiful the fact that is so crowded by tourists makes it less interesting or attractive than other places in Kyoto. Of course it’s a nice thing to visit while in the area, surrounded by temples and really close to Gion.

Great park to feed the pigeon and a short break after a long walking in the morning. It’s a walk in a little park, with great view of lake from the bridge. Little boy is being excited and chasing the pigeons away.

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
