Maruyama Park (Kyoto)

Travel Guide - Maruyama Park (Kyoto)


Located in the east side of Yasaka-jinja Shrine, Maruyama Park is a favorite of locals and visitors alike as a place to escape the bustle of the city center of Kyoto and amble around the gardens, ponds, souvenir shops and restaurants. Peaceful paths meander through the trees and carp glide through the waters of a small pond in the center of the park.
From late March to mid-April, when the park's cherry trees come into bloom, many people gather here to appreciate the cherry blossoms. The centerpiece of it all is a massive Shidare-zakura cherry tree. The cherry tree is called "Gion's Yozakura (cherry blossoms at night)" because it is one of the most beautiful sights in the Gion district of Kyoto, particularly when lit up from below at night.
