  • Very good place to visit during spring. The park have a variety of cherry trees with different beautiful colors, besides, there is a river passing through the park with nice waterfalls.  more »
  • The park was nice but since we visited in winter all the trees were barren unfortunately. We still had a good stroll and that led us to the shopping district  more »

  • It is one of the best place to visit during spring. Beautiful cherry blossom trees are everywhere. There are also many places to sit down and relax. You can get beer and food from street restarants. A lot to see and good place to spend time with friends and family. A lot of photo spots too.
  • I went during winter, so the autumn leaves were all but gone. However, this is a very good place to see them when in season. There are food stalls if you're hungry, and you can proceed to the main park area for some very nice photos. This is a small walk from the main Gion shopping street, so definitely give this place a visit.
