    Maruyama Park is known as one of the best flower viewing sites in Kyoto City and is crowded with many flower viewing visitors and stalls around from late March to early April. About 680 cherry blossom trees are planted in the park and a weeping cherry in the center of the park is particularly famous with the name Gion no Yozakura (cherry blossoms in Gion at night). During flower viewing season, it is illuminated with a bonfire so you can enjoy cherry blossoms at night in a unique old capital atmosphere. Shops and toilets are available in the park. Kyoto Municipal Maruyama Parking is available for a fee.

    Chidorigafuchi-ryokudo Walkway is a walkway with lush greenery that runs for a total of about 700 meters along Chidorigafuchi moat on the west side of the Imperial Palace. The cherry blossoms bloom above people strolling along the walkway, and you can have an experience that is like walking in a tunnel of cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms are illuminated in the evening, and the sight of the cherry trees reflected in the water of the moat is beautiful. It is one of the best spots in Japan for cherry blossoms, being visited by more than one million people from around the world, including Japan, during cherry blossom viewing season.
