The area
Address
Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

以前この柳馬場通御池付近を散歩した時は桜の時期ではなかったのでまったく咲いていませんでしたが、今日は3月23日で世間では開花などの情報もあり咲いているかなぁ?との思いで行ったら見事に咲いていました。綺麗です。
また付近には石碑もあります是非立ち寄りを!

御池通りと柳の馬場通りの交わる北東角がカフェで、その左となりが京都市立御池中学校で、中学校の前にありました 立派な桜の木をだと思っていたのですが、まだ若い桜の木が3本、GWだったので桜は終わっていて残念でした

 市民の皆さんに可愛がってもらいたいと「御池桜」の愛称が付けられていますが,12月から4月まで咲き続ける不断桜で(十月桜という品種だという説もある。),御池通と柳馬場通が交差する角,京都御池創生館の西側に1本植えられていまず,八重桜で,花びらの端の方がうっすらピンク色。今年は12月下旬から順々に咲き始め,3月中旬のこの日はだいぶ見頃になって,目をなごませてくれました。
