Okochi Sanso Gardens (大河内山荘庭園)

4.0

Other Historic Site/Building

This is a garden made by early Showa period film actor Okochi Denjiro, which took 30 years to finish. It is at the foot of Mt. Ogura facing the Katsuragawa River, showing the beauty of the passing seasons from spring’s cherry blossoms to autumn’s maple leaves. Here one can enjoy views of Mt. Arashiyama, Mt. Hiei and Mt. Daimonji.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
