As a cherry blossom viewing spot in Kyoto, there is a recommended spot along the Kamo River that I personally compete for one or two. It is also better north of the Kamogawa Delta. Or rather this is absolute. The Kamogawa Delta is crowded with university students and tourists. However, going further north, you can enjoy a truly relaxing cherry blossom viewing from around the Kyoto Botanical Gardens. The nearest station is about a 6-minute walk from "Kitaoji Station" and about 10 minutes from "Kitayama Station". Furthermore, there is also the possibility of crossing Kitayama-dori. There are so many cherry blossom viewing spots, if this is Tokyo, it's always crowded, Here in Kyoto, there are no people at all in such a wonderful place. Well, it's natural that it's so crowded. Cherry-blossom viewing in Tokyo is unusual because there are too many people. It's in a potato-washed state.
There are few people even if it blooms so much. It ’s wonderful! !! It's hard to see such a luxury. By the way, this is about going north on Kitayama-dori.
There are various types of cherry blossoms in Kyoto, such as weeping cherry blossoms and wild cherry blossoms. It may be the best along the Kamo River in Kyoto that only Yoshino cherry trees are available.
This day when it was raining was April 9, 2017. The cherry blossom season is basically the same in Tokyo and Kyoto.
It is in full bloom. Spring of this world. There is also a cafe nearby, so you don't have to worry about rice.
But! !! For cherry blossom viewing in Kyoto, we recommend that you bring a lunch box from a famous Kyoto store. By the way, on this day, "Kamibox Sushi" of "Izuju" founded in the Meiji era is 1600 yen. The colorful and gorgeous sushi is perfect for cherry blossoms. I also wrote an article about "Izuju", so click here for details ↓ ↓ ↓ It's sure to look good on Instagram! "Kamibox Sushi" from Kyoto's long-established store [Izuju]
The sight of seeing cherry blossoms in Japanese clothes is unique to Kyoto. Nature, lunch boxes, and people are all gorgeous. Spring is nice. It's exceptional only after the long and cold winters of Kyoto.
Other than the cherry blossoms, it is already in full bloom. Various flowers are in full bloom here and there. Cherry blossoms at temples and shrines are good, but after all, you can see various cherry blossoms in such an environment full of nature.
Weeping cherry blossoms are also famous along the Kyoto Botanical Gardens. Many people wonder if it's uploaded to Instagram.
It is also recommended to go by car. You can enjoy the cherry blossom tunnel.
The bench is reasonably good, and I'm grateful that it's okay even if I don't bring a seat. And the bench is vacant! !! A scene that cannot be seen in Tokyo.
The area north of Kitayama-dori from the recommended Kyoto Botanical Gardens is about 30-40 minutes on foot. Just the right distance. Of course, you can walk as far as you want, or you can come and go. all you want. And when I like, I sit on the bench and eat lunch. A luxury where you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing as you like, like a picnic, a walk, or a jogging. Once again, it is a spot that can be said to be the 1st place, competing for 1 and 2 at the cherry blossoms and cherry blossom viewing spots in Kyoto!
