I visited easily 20 gardens in Kyoto, and I would rate this the most beautiful. Ended up spending nearly 2.5 hours here.. The entrance fee is 400 Yen if I recall correctly and it is well worth it. It is a must visit place within...More

This garden is very small and not really worth the entry fee. Compared to the spectacular gardens at Himeji the previous day it was fairly lack lustre.

깊어져만 가는 가을 그대 고민하지말고, 지금 떠나라. 붉게 물든 교토의 가을이 당신을 기다린다. 深まるばかり行く秋 君悩まないで、今出発せよ。 赤く染まった京都の秋があなたを待っている。 A deepening fall Don't worry about yourself, just leave now. The autumn of Kyoto, which is stained with red color, awaits you.

Perhaps less well known to foreign tourists (not to the locals, as seen from the long queue for the evening sessions), it is one of the most special gardens for autumn colors, particular in the evening. There is a separate admission fee for the evening...More

The Tenjuan Garden is absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful plants and a pond with tons of Japanese carps that are very eager to come near. If you are into photography, you may end up spending a few hours here.

Tenjuan Garden is a beautiful garded, but probably best enjoyed in the spring or later in the autumn. Like in every Japanese garden, it has a very nice pond (with Koi).

There is a lovely path through a little tree glade and around a pond, and a nice gravel zen garden. We might have enjoyed it more if we didn't feel self-pressed to see the rest of Nanzen-ji. The zen garden must be spectacular in the...More

Absolutely stunning gardens, I would say the absolute gem at Nanzen-ji Complex. A beautiful, tranquil space.

This is a small subtemple of the Nanzen-ji complex, but in my opinion it is one of the most beautiful and memorable. Possibly because there are less tourists coming in (I guess you would think twice about paying the fee for this small temple when...More
