I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
I went to see cherry blossoms at the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
Kyoto was the capital of Japan for nearly 1,100 years until 794.
The capital was moved from Nara, the former first permanent capital of Japan.
Then Kyoto capital continued until capital moved to Tokyo in 1868.
Luckily, it was not bombed during World War II.
Heart of Japan
Thanks to that, there are still many old shrines, Buddhist temples, and many other cultural heritage sites.
There are 17 UNESCO world heritage sites here.
There are 500 shrines and 1,500 Buddhist temples, and Kyoto is still the center of traditional Japanese culture.
The Kyoto Imperial Palace was the residence of the Emperor of Japan.
And the present building was used from 1392 until the Emperor moved to Tokyo in 1869.
It is famous for the many beautiful cherry trees that can be seen here.
Konoe residence weeping cherry blossoms
There is a place here famous for its weeping cherry trees.
It’s the place where Konoe aristocrat’s house was.

The weeping cherry trees are pinker in color and have smaller petals than normal cherry trees.
