Absolutely stunning Castle in Kyoto, I think it’s classified as a world heritage site. The gardens and architecture of the castle is something you won’t forget. I don’t presume to know much about such things but you can appreciate the beauty and history of this building. Well worth a visit if you are in Kyoto.

Very fun to see the old castle. Check out the replicas of famous paintings and read about the castle in both Japanese and English. The garden is famously beautiful in Spring and Autumn, but we went in Summer and even in the rain it was enjoyable.

It was an interesting thing to see. Though many parts were under renovation (7/13/2019) most likely due to the 2020 olympics, you can still have an amazing view of the castle and garden. The green areas are truly spectacular to see and the history is quite interesting. I believe around 2 hours would suffice, 3 if you are a slow walker and like to take a lot of pictures.

It is another historical castle with beautiful gardens located on Kyoto. The place is open from 0845 AM to 4 PM daily. Allocate around 3 hours to fully enjoy this place at a leisure pace. Otherwise you can speed though it in an hour too. The main attraction is the huge Palace in the middle. Beautiful and elegant and very preserved. You have to take off your shoes. There are markings in English language with audio tours available. Surrounding gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. It's a treat to enjoy the serene atmosphere and beauty of this place. Must visit place in Kyoto and highly recommended.

I didn’t understand the beauty of this place. There are many more much worthy places in Kyoto to visit. Yes, of course it represents an important historical and cultural heritage, but at least visually it is average. There are two palaces inside and one was completely covered for renovation.
The other you can walk into but it is very crowded. Most of the art work inside is reproduction only. The originals are kept at the gallery also on the palace grounds, but it is only open for special exhibits (check the schedule online). Inside the palace it was so hot, with no circulating air at all and tons of people and jams. About mid way I felt dizzy and just wanted to get out, but you have to follow the official route and walk all the way back to the entrance.
Gardens were ok, also did not feel too special comparing to some gorgeous gardens you can find in temples near by.
If you are on a tight schedule I think this can easily be skipped.
