Kyoto Gyoen National Garden (京都御苑)

Park / Green Space

A 65 hectare garden surrounding Kyoto Gosho and Sento Gosho (Imperial Palaces) which can be freely visited at any time. Before the capital was moved to Tokyo, the area was filled with mansions for imperial household members and court nobles, but after the move, these were demolished and the area was refurbished as grounds for the palace. Later, it was opened up as a public garden. Home to such historic sites as, of course, the palace, Kujo Pond, and the Shu Sui Tei (Tea-ceremony House), the garden is also filled with trees, small rivers, and an abundance of natural beauty. There are tennis courts, sports grounds, and other exercise facilities, and people of all ages can come here to relax and refresh themselves.

          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.
