Surprising garden

Behind the very usual entrance there is a gorgeous garden - which I didn't expect it all, its quite big and walking around reveals more and more sides to it.

Well, this is one very beautiful garden in Kyoto, which is located near the Ritsumeikan University. I am sure you will not regret a visit. Its location is a bit far from the main line, but side by side with the University.

We spent some two hours trying to find the shrine on the photo, only to find out that we should've been looking for T?-ji (and not Tojin) close to the Kyoto railway station instead.

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
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.
