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.

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.
