Kamo River Banks Near Kitayama Bridge
The area along the river banks between Kitayama Street and Kitaoji Street are maintained beautifully as a park. People stroll, jog, ride bicycles, have picnic lunches, and practice musical instruments here. The forest at left (east side) is the 24-hectare Kyoto Botanical Garden. In early April, cherry blossoms flourish on both sides of the river.
