We were planning to go to the Kyoto Botanical Garden, which is right next door, but the garden was closed due to an electrical problem, so we came here instead. This is an outdoor park, made of mostly concrete and lots and lots of falling...More
In fact, it’s a path. For lovers of modern art and architecture it’s a must. The fee is symbolic-100 yen. I loved the walk in this structure, basically a concrete path going under itself, and the waterfalls, and sat on a bench there for quite...More
Was looking forward to this after reading the other reviews, but when we arrived I was scratching my head-- what is the point of this? The overall architecture and the sheets of falling water are nice enough, but the art reproductions are quite unremarkable-- in...More
Intriguing "garden" next to the Kyoto Botanical Garden. Multi-level outdoor structure with water features and reproductions of a variety of famous paintings (e.g., The Last Supper, Monet's Waterlilies). The waterfalls create an incredible calming effect.

Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the
district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
