Maruyama Park is the oldest park in Kyoto and located in the center of Gion area, next to Yasaka Shrine.
In the park, there is a walk-through Japanese garden with a pond in the centre. And the symbol of Maruyama Park, "Weeping Cherry of Gion", stands at the center of the park.

From middle-March each year, when approximately 800 cherry trees are in full bloom, Maruyama Park becomes Kyoto's most popular spot for viewing cherry blossoms. Especially the big "Weeping Cherry(shidare-zakura) of Gion" which is over 80 years old and 12-m tall attracts everyone. In the evening, the weeping cherry tree is illuminated with LED lights, and it creates a magical sight you would never experienced before!
