I stumbled upon Maruyama park while wandering around Kyoto one day. It's amazing how many people are so busy seeing Yasaka shrine that they forget and overlook this large and peaceful park. I walked in and there were very few people, so it was great...More

Maruyama park is quite nice for a walk when it's quiet in the morning. You can walk from yakasa shrine to chion temple and other landmarks around here.

Maruyama Park if one of the most popular places for cherry blossom viewing in Kyoto. A great place to unwind and take in the beauty of the cherry trees.

The park is adjacent to the Yakasa Shrine. By the time we reached the park around 6pm, it was full of picnickers. The park's star attraction is a weeping cherry tree which becomes lit up at night. It was beautiful with the illumination.
