Kyoto Botanical Gardens information
The Kyoto Botanical Gardens occupy 240,000 sq metres and feature 12,000 plants, flowers and trees. It is pleasant to stroll through the rose, cherry and herb gardens or see the rows of camphor trees and the large tropical greenhouse . This is a good spot for a picnic. It’s also a great spot for a hanami (cherry-blossom viewing) party, and the blossoms here tend to hold on a little longer than those elsewhere in the city.
