Kyoto Imperial palace park (Kyoto Gyoen national garden)

Kyoto Imperial palace park, where the residences of the Imperial family and court nobles once stood, is located near the center of the Kyoto city. After the capital was moved to Tokyo, the palace was turned into a park and made open to the general public. With its wide gravel streets and abundant and beautiful green trees and lawns, this park is known as an urban oasis for birds.
This spacious park is under controll of Ministry of Environment, except Imperial Palace buildings.
