Kyoto Gyoen National garden (10 September 2020)
Kyoto Gyoen National garden is huge garden including Imperial palace and Sento imperial palace, but start from outside imperial palace. There are 9 gates at Kyoto Gyoen National garden, but most famous one is Hamaguri gate.
Hamaguri gate, literally Clam gate, the gate known as unopened except in a case of fire, so opened like heated clam. The official name is Shinzaemon.
Huge gravel streets are designed in the garden
Also we can enjoy strolling along natural flow named demizu-no-small river
I visited Kan’in-no-miya residence, former one of the imperial families’ residence through an elegant shape of East gate.
I relaxed in a calm and tranquil old residence of imperial family’s residence
Let’s move to Sento Imperial palace next.
