Not just aquariums and railway museums! Oasis “Umekoji Park” near Kyoto Station

A 15-minute walk from Kyoto Station, Umekoji Park is an urban oasis.

Because there are two major sightseeing spots on the premises, "Kyoto Aquarium" and "Kyoto Railway Museum", near Kyoto Station.

Although it is not well known nationwide, it is a park familiar to Kyoto citizens.

It is also familiar as a park that can be seen through the train window when going from JR Kyoto Station to Osaka.


Anyway, it's close to Kyoto station, so sightseeing in Kyoto is over.

Also recommended when you want to relax in a comfortable place.


It's close to the station, but it's huge. The reason was probably that it was originally a warehouse for railroad cars.


You can see various activities of Kyoto citizens.


If you go by car, there is a parking lot on the west side of the park, so it is a good duck to use.


Anyway, there are chinchin trains here and there.


Inside is a mini museum like this. The relationship between Kyoto and the Chinchin train is revealed!


Kyoto Railway Museum on the premises. Use the old station building as it is. It's tasteful and cool.

I wonder if it's new and I'm not using it anymore.


Suzaku Garden entrance. It seems that it was made in commemoration of the 1200th anniversary of the return of Heian.

We are proud of the garden made by collecting the gardening techniques of Kyoto.


A spirited building facing the Suzaku Garden.


It will be a strolling garden.


Nature is so rich that it makes us forget that this is the city.


It feels good because there aren't many people.


Suzaku Garden continues to the forest as it is.


Go to the biotope like a forest. Well, you can enjoy a forest bath that you can't think of in the city center.


I left Suzaku Garden and took a walk in Umekoji Park again. Fully equipped with playset that children will be absorbed in playing for an hour.


There is also a shop next to it, so you can take a break here.


This is one of the highlights of Umekoji Park.

Yes, you can get on the Chinchin train.


The inside is also classic and cool. Not just riding, but actually running.

I will move a little in the large park.


When you get off the Chinchin train, there is a shop.


A large amount of railway-related goods.


Light meals in another vehicle.


Well, there are many kinds of Umekoji Park, but the most important one is this large open space.

You can lie down, play catch, or play badminton.


The Kyoto Aquarium is next to the field. This is also good. Umekoji Park, Kyoto Aquarium, Kyoto Railway Museum in one day

There is nothing you can't do with a forced schedule, but you should spend a day watching all of them.

There is also a water park beside the square on the opposite side of the aquarium.
