Having missed the sakura full bloom in Kyoto, we decided to tour Haradani for its late blooming sakura and other plantings. We were enchanted! Contrary to some reports that this garden is not crowded due to its location and entrance fees, this is not the...More

We have been to Haradanien during the first week of April as most of the other sakura spots in Kyoto were off season. It was really a headache to go to Haradanien by public transportation by train and then connect with an in-frequent bus line....More

This small, privately owned hill is filled with cherry blossoms, yellow kerria japonica and white spiraea. When I visited with my family in early April, we literally felt we were enveloped in a dizzying mist of pink fog. Note that the park has a unique...More

I visited with a group of friends for cherry blossom. Wonderful gardens with seas of cherry blossom engulfing us. Highly recommend coming early cos it can get busy toward lunch time.

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
