    Maruyama Park
    It's a nice park in Kyoto but at the time I visited it was extremely crowded and I had to be careful not to trip over people taking selfies. But if you walk a bit further up, the people lessen. Great to have a picnic or just a little rest. Lots of benches and some toilets as well.

    Definitely worth a visit during sakura season
    As always, we stop by Maruyama to check out our old friend, the glorious Gion shidare-zakura, weeping cherry tree. We had read somewhere that the tree was not in the best of health, but, nonetheless, it did look spectacular the day we visited. The crowds were there enjoying hanami under the trees and the egret was in the pond just as it always is. The tourists in their rental kimonos could get in the way of our photographing, but mostly they were opting to take selfies, as always. It’s wonderful to return after 3 years away (COVID) and find things as we remember them to be.

    Best cherry blossom viewing
    This is a small park around a pond. The downside is lots of vendors. I went on a rainy afternoon so it wasn’t too crowded. The cherry blossoms were magnificent. I really enjoyed just walking around the pond. It’s not a very large space.

    Sakura in Full Bloom Worth the Visit
    This place is just stunning, with the Sakura in full bloom, the egrets in the water and the young people in their hire Kimonos looking spectacular. Many food vendors cooking and serving up a variety of food. So much going on and to take in it was very enjoyable.

    Don't miss the huge sakura tree in the park!
    Mobs of people flock to Maruyama Park during cherry-blossom season. There is a huge sakura tree in the park that is incredibly impressive. The tree and the park are well lighted at night and combined with numerous food stalls create a festive environment.

Maruyama Park is a delightful escape in Kyoto! Its enchanting beauty comes alive during cherry blossom season, offering an unforgettable Hanami experience. The towering weeping cherry tree, serene pond, and lush landscapes create a peaceful atmosphere for picnics and strolls, making it a favorite destination for both locals and visitors.

It’s a pretty nice park and has a few shrines in or around it. Definitely a little creepy at night though, wife and I took a stroll and decided to leave. Lol

Maruyama Park is a picturesque little space of green that is located very close nearby to many famous temples and shrines. We visited the location in fall, when the colors had hit the trees already, coloring them in many shades of green, yellow and red, which made for a fantastic stroll and great pictures! Very recommendable stop and perfectly combinable with Chion-In and other temples!

I'm sure this is a nice park at the right time of year, but February is not that time. It was a bit plain and the large advertising hoardings spoilt it a bit.

I came here after visiting Yasaka-Jinja, which was packed full of people just before sunset. I was hoping to see some nice foliage, but most of the leaves were already on the ground at this point. Still is was a lovely place to rest my weary legs.
