Kyoto Gyoen National Garden

Kyoto Gyoen National Garden

InformationInformation

Located in the center of the Kyoto city, this huge park-like compound includes several palace buildings. It was also the location of many fine residences belonging to the ranking noble court families until the time when they moved to Tokyo with the Emperor in 1868. Then these residences were torn down and a massive park with lawns and over 9,000 trees was created. Today, this extensive park area is a highly popular recreation and relaxation zone.
On the Hamaguri-gomon gate, you can find some real bullet holes which were made during the Kinmon Incident (Hamaguri Gate Rebellion) in 1864. At the south of the Hamaguri-gomon gate, there are 200 of plum trees and beautiful flowers can be seen from mid-February until mid-March.
