We were there in November and they advertised an exhibition of chrysanthemums. A bit off the tourist paths, I had to look up the bus route, you can also get there with the Keihan train.
Worth going here for some quiet time, away from the...More
These gardens were very impressive with flowers still blooming even middle of October.
Well laid out and interesting. Bonsai section was quite stunning.
Not very crowded so peaceful and tranquil feel. Some damage to the trees could be seen from the recent typhoons that have...More
The gardens, located in the north part of Kyoto, are really peaceful and quiet. Compared to the other gardens we saw in and around Kyoto, it felt a bit melancholic to me... But if you want to get away from the crowded temples, then that's...More
I imagine the collection of Camellia and Prunus must make the Kyoto Botanical Garden a highlight of the city when they are in bloom. Unfortunately, when I visited there had just been a storm and there were area cordoned off due to downed trees.
I visited this botanical garden in Spring, just as the blossom was out. It was so beautiful in an understated way. Don't go if you want big thrills. Do go if you want elegance, peace and beauty - and bring a picnic!
We walked around for hours. Recommend bringing an umbrella or a hat and sunblock for a warm day. Please do not forget to go into the botanical building on the other side of the gardens. Such diversity in plants!
We read that it was worth the visit and WOW what a garden. Enormous and the hothouse was huge.
We were also lucky to see the rose gardens in full bloom and if you love roses you would be very happy. The bushes were bending...More
Had high hopes, but a bit disappointed in this park, we can not call it a garden.
Poorly landscaped, so in summer there are hardly any flowers, or blooming plants. The rose garden was ok, but then again, pretty flowers but no real ambience. If...More
We spent an excellent three hours or so here. Some Botanical gardens are somewhat academic, this one though has lots of variety, the Irises, Rose Garden and the huge conservatory stood out. Also there was a Bonsai exhibition on whilst we were there, I didn't...More
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.
