The highlight of Shugakuin is a spectacular view of the gardens from a hilltop pavilion. You must get permission to visit and will go through the garden with a guided group. Permission is not as hard to get as reputed if you go in person to the Imperial Household Agency by the Imperial Palace. In early October they offered us a wide range of available times.
