 Kyoto Gyoen National Garden

After Emperor Meiji directed the Government to maintain the now empty old imperial palace, many abandoned court noble houses were taken down and removed, roads broadened, and greenery planted. The 63-hectare area surrounding the palace, which used to be a large residence compound, is now a national garden, where people in Kyoto, from young to old, can relax.
