Kyoto Botanical Garden is a historical botanical garden that opened in 1924
as Japan’s first public comprehensive botanical garden.
In addition to a rose garden and one of the largest viewing greenhouses
in western Japan with more than 4,500 varieties of plants,
the garden also has a beautiful autumnal foliage,
including the Iroha-momiji (Japanese maple tree),
and a large grassy area perfect for a picnic, making it a great place
for both children and adults to enjoy themselves!
There is a wide variety of cosmos, with 4,000 to 5,000 plants of about 30 varieties
of yellow, double, and tubular flowers, and a colorful array of pink, red, white, yellow,
and orange flowers from mid-October to mid-November.
From now on, the park will be decorated with colorful autumn flowers such as cosmos,
chrysanthemum, salvia, calyx, and roses.
The Chrysanthemum Exhibition, held from October 20 to November 15
at the special exhibition hall of Oshiba, is also a must-see.
About 300 pots of various kinds of chrysanthemums,
including large, small and classical chrysanthemums, are in full bloom.
If you walk north from the botanical garden, overlooking the Kamo River,
you will find Kamigamo Shrine, the oldest shrine in Kyoto!
This is a power spot where you can get rid of bad luck and tie the knot.
