Neighborhood: Northern Kyoto
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.

A sad sad place in November
Nov 2019
I visited around 10th of November, then this was a sad sad place. Almost none of the plants had any leaves left and the garden held non of the beauty associated with autumn in Japan. Not worth the entry price. The only good thing about this place was the view, but you can get almost the same view from the parkinglot for free.

Most beautiful garden - a must visit
Jun 2019 • Family
I believe this garden should be number 1 attraction of Kyoto. It's so beautiful that words can not describe it. What's really amazing about this fabulous garden that has locations based on famous paintings such as Monet. Don't miss it. The view specially in a sunny day is priceless

A stunningly beautiful place on top of a mountain.
Aug 2016 • Family
This is hands down one of the best garden museums that I've been to. All of the paintings were carefully presented and set in a very artistic manner. Even when Kyoto is known for its terrible heat during summer, this place is cool and refreshing. I saw how beautiful Kyoto and Shiga was from the observatory located in this mountain. I recommend you to bring your own food or snacks if you will be staying for a long period of time looking to the fact that there is only one restaurant available (reservations can't be made) and the food were... not up to my standard. If you wish to see illumination, visit between July 16 - August 28.

A hidden gem atop a mountain
Jul 2016 • Couples
The best part of visiting this garden is the steep cable car and ropeway (gondola) you take to get there. The garden itself is exquisite with a lovely gift shop on site. Stunning views on a clear day. Quite pricy though - take your own snacks to save yourself a hit to the wallet.
