An old imperial palace-turned-park, Kyoto Gyoen National Garden makes a good place for a long walk under trees in the midst of an ancient capital city. Several shrines scattered around the park provide a surprise factor for curious walkers strolling among cherry trees, magnolias, and plum trees in this well-kept area. Children can burn off steam in a playground with swings and sandboxes, while joggers and cyclists can exercise on gravel and grassy paths. You'll find public restrooms and vending machines across the park. Arrange to visit Kyoto Gyoen National Garden and other attractions in Kyoto using our Kyoto tour planner.

The area is quite big so it wasn't very crowded. We at noon and at that time there weren't too many tourists. Also the park is nice for a walk when you want to escape the the city for once.
Beautiful place to visit. The gardens are serene and inviting. A person can't help but meditate on important things while viewing.
