"KYOTO IMPERIAL PALACE" Kyoto Imperial Palace Tip by Adeline_Foo

Kyoto Imperial Palace, Kyoto: 16 reviews and 34 photos


It is noted for its striking simplicity. The present site was chosen in 1790, and the present palace was completed in 1855, after the former one was destroyed by fire. The style reflects as closely as possible the original styles.
I was there in the early morning on my last day in Kyoto before I go to the Kyoto Station for my train back to Tokyo. The place is simple, quiet and air is crisping. Saw some old couples holding hands strolling in the morning air, mothers who bring their kids for an early fun
