“Another lovely place to visit”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Though we visited after the cherry blossom season, I am happy to have visited this park (which according to the guidebook is Kyoto's most famous cherry blossom viewing site!). The greeneries, the little lake, in the park are quite impressive. We visited in the morning and it was just a stroll away from our ryokan in Ne-ne no Michi area.

“Picnic under the sakura trees”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Simply awesome, boy i tell you this is a must visit during sakura season.

There was rows of stalls selling Japanese street snacks. Families having picnic at every corner of the park. Sakura showers on us when the wind blew. A moment of blissful.

Grab some snacks and eat under the sakura trees watch tthe kids running about. Sometimes a laid back holiday like this is really enjoyable. After a short break walk over to yasaka shrine.

Oh, do check out the popular weeping cherry tree at the center of the park.

There early April and at night this park was ablaze with lanterns, braziers and floodlit weeping cherry trees. Everyone enjoying their Hanami picnics and lots of food stalls to sample local food.

“Hanami best spot”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

When entering this park from Yasaka Shrine, food stall is all over the walkway. It is the main hanami spot in Kyoto. Mats and tables and chairs are already provided at the park. People gathering here for drinks and eating. A very happening place start from morning until night. Night illumination also available during sakura. The giant cheery tree in the center of the park is its icon. It is a lovely park.
