Nijo-jo Castle Nakagyo
#22 of 973 Sights & Landmarks in Kyoto
In addition I recommend stopping by the teahouse where you can enjoy some delicious tea and cake while facing a gorgeous garden view complete with a stream (see photos!).
In Kyoto, the Nijo-Jo Castle was the 2nd landmark we chose to visit and enjoy the wonderful architecture of its buildings, the supreme design and tranquility of its gardens and in overall the permanent equilibrium...

But unlike Kiyomizu-dera or Nijo Castle, each building in the shrine is small and doesn’t offer spectacular view.
This simple Shinto shrine is twin to the Kamigamo jinja and both are UNESCO world heritage sites.

The garden has a long lake and you go through different areas with fantastic views of mature trees, many flowering plants (cherry, azalea, hydrangea,..) and manicured Japanese maples.
In different from other places, there is large and beatiful distant view against the mountains, very quiet and peaceful space, which is changing what and how people look and feel every season.

Within the guarded walls it was incredible to walk among the gravelled floors to view the beautiful Japanese architecture and walk through one of the most beautiful gardens I've seen throughout my stay.
But it you find they're open and accepting visitors, best take full opportunity and go! They've got a well marked route tourists can follow and almost every building on site has a helpful information sign put up n...

The environment is truly peaceful and serene and for once, I could truly sit around as I wanted to and enjoy the sakura view from different parts of the temple.

It is much smaller but really beautiful with the magical garden, cute turtles in the pond and beautiful view from the veranda of the Main Hall of the temple onto so called two-dimensional garden with a Crane and T...
It is so quiet compared to the main sites, but very beautiful, with all the iconic aspects of the Japanese temple garden: Zen rock garden, pond of koi carp and turtles, moss covered rocks and trees.

After three days of touring Kyoto and seeing all of the sights, this experience really pulled it all together for me.

The Imperial Household agency in the northwest corner efficiently handles requests for admission to the three Imperial sites on required guided tours (Gosho, Shugakoin, Katsura) ; just bring your passport and choo...
Compared to Katsura and Shugukuin Imperial Villas, the Sento Garden makes less use of combining the garden with distant views.
