  • Huge, nice, quiet and relaxing place. It's not overcrowded but you need a reservation and a guide to get in. However, the surrounding park is also very large, nice and quiet and you can visit it at any time without need to worry about the entrance.
  • Probably the best Japanese garden I've seen. There are only FREE, limited guided tours (3 per day, about 35 persons) that you need to book in advance on the internet or next to the entrance during the morning. The tour is in Japanese, but audio guides are offered in several languages for free upon arrival. You must follow the indicated route with the guide, but unlike other Japanese gardens in Kyoto you have plenty of space and time to enjoy the views and take your pictures. The buildings around are not that impressive, but they have some interesting story behind. A totally recommended visit while in Kyoto. Personal tip: Be at the entrance about 11 to get reserve your ticket (bring your passport!), book for the 2 or 3 PM slot and go to the Nijo castle while you wait.
