We only recommend the best - SAKURA・スタッフのイチオシ桜スポット Part.1

Rokusonou Shrine・六孫王神社

The spring is coming. (and Game of Thrones season 8 is coming, too LOL)

Everyone knows that Kyoto has a lot of places with sakura (cherry blossom) which is truly awesome. I believe that no one will doubt that. But usually as you know they are crowded too. Also, there are so many information/guides/blogs/books that teaches you where you should go or you shouldn't go. Too many choices overwhelming you? Or perhaps you only need some quiet places to have a walk and seeing sakura? Don't worry. The only thing you need to do is trust us, read our recommendation, and go. You won't regret it.


Our recommendation・スタッフのおすすめ

Yodogawa River Park Sewaritei Area・淀川背割堤MAP)

This area is really a amazing place to see sakura. It is over 2 km continuously planted with 250 lines of Yoshino Sakura trees. It is not only a place to take a walk and flower seeing but also a perfect place for a picnic. Just bring some foods, drinks, grab friends you made at The Millennials Kyoto and enjoy seeing sakura.


■Access:Take Keihan line to Yawata City Station and walk about 10 minutes



Trust me, you should not miss the world heritage Tou-ji if you want to see sakura in Kyoto. You can visit there in the daytime or in the evening regarding that they are holding a breathtaking light up event during evening. In my opinion I recommend going in the evening.


■Access:Take bus 207甲 from Kawaramachi-shijo Bus Stop to To-ji Higashimonzen Bus Stop


Fushimi Jikkokufune・伏見十石船(MAP)

In here you can have a small boat tour with Jikkokubune Canal Cruise seeing sakura. Or simply have a walk along the river. This place is near the famous Fushimi-Inari the thousand gates and the Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum. It might be great to have a tour like going to Fushimi-Inari in the morning, taking the boat seeing sakura, then going to Sake Museum. Bring a bottle of sake back to the hotel after your tour will be a good idea, too. The most important thing to note is that comparing to the major sakura spots in Kyoto, this hole in the wall area is rarely crowded.


■Access:Take Keihan Line to Chushojima Station and walk about 10 minutes.
