"Heian Shrine Garden" Kyoto Off The Beaten Path Tip by applered

Kyoto Off The Beaten Path: 88 reviews and 126 photos


The Japanese garden is not something you can miss. It costs you 500 yens but it certainly worth it. It is not huge but the landscape varied. It gives you a sense of serenity. Additional advantage is that It is not crowded. Since you must go to visit the red enormous wooden structure, Heian Shrine when you are in Kyoto, let's spend another hour in the garden as well.
