I go to this Pond often. The pictures are from April when the cherry blossoms were at its peak. It is right next to where I am staying and off the beaten path. The 28 bus takes you right to it. It is next to Daikakuji Temple and it has a path that you can walk all around. In the pond there are turtles and giant fish. In the summer there will be lots of water plants and lotus. It is in need of repairs and maintenance for sure but not very many people go so it is nice. There is a box where you pay 100 yen per person so please do that. Open from 9am-5pm

Osawaike is a well-known viewing spot of full-moon. I had a chance to visit it on the harvest moon night. I did not take a boat, but if you like, you can do so by paying $10 contribution. The reflection of the moon on the water was fantastic. The entrance fee for Daikakuji Temple is required extra.

Osawa-ike is a pond.Ike means pond, not so big as lake nor lagoon, but not small as a pond.Osawaike is beside Daikakuji Temple that is very prestigious in Kyoto, the history of the temple dates back to the ancient periods.The temple started as a private dwelling of ex emperer, and later, it became a temple.At that time,the pond was utilized for leisure for ancient patricians with dinghy.The scene is very beautiful with mountain backside.Therefore, usually, this pond is visited with Daikakuji, and be recommendable.Located in the northwestern part of Kyoto,access is not good, taking a bus from Kyoto Station in less than 1 hour ride is needed, or you can take a JR train and from the nearest station, a little walk is necessary. I myself take a bus,have never used a train to here.Near Arashiyama, you can do sightseeing at the same time, here and Arashiyama, many famous temples are there.Seiryouji, Nisonin, Adasinonennbutsudera,Tenryuji and so on are near.
