Kyoto Sights

Maruyama Koen (Maruyama Park)

  • Park/Playground

Fodor's Review

This well-manicured park at the foot of the Higashiyama range is a good resting place when touring the Gion area. It is a popular venue for drinking sake outdoors, especially during the cherry-blossom season. A 20-minute hike up the mountain provides a picturesque view of the city. From Kyoto Station, take Bus 206 to the Higashiyama stop; the park is north of Kodai-ji.
