    More than three centuries ago, when Kyoto was the capital of Japan, three magnificent gardens were created there for the imperial court. Today these three gardens-those of the Sento Imperial Palace (Sento Gosho), the Katsura Detached Palace (Katsura Rikyu), and the Shugakuin Detached Palace (Shugakuin Rikyu)-are among the most celebrated in Japanese garden art. It is an "official" Imperial Grounds so you cannot just go there because the Imperial Household Agency runs it and you must 'book' an official tour (see below). Unfortunately the official tour is only given in Japanese but there is an English audio guide available. This imperial villa has 3 villas; the Upper, Lower and Middle villa.

    The property is miles from Samurai Kembu Kyoto and miles from Imperial Palace. With free WiFi, this vacation home has a TV, a washing machine and a kitchen with a microwave and fridge. Shoren-in Temple is miles from the vacation home, while Shugakuin Imperial Villa Location: Sakyo-ku Ginkakuji Mae- Kyoto, Japan All information contained in this book is based on data as of Feb. 1, and is subject to change without notice.

    What is Katsura Imperial Villa. Located in the western suburbs of Kyoto along the western bank of the Katsura River, Katsura Imperial Villa are facilities related to the imperial family. In , Hachijyonomiya Toshihitoshino of the royal family began building the villa and the project was completed 47 years later.   Having been to both the Kyoto Imperial Palace and Shugakuin Imperial Villa, I will say that the Kyoto Palace tour group was bigger and much easier to book online. I was still able to get a spot even with only one week left to the actual date. However, the Shugakuin Villa tour group was much smaller and totally booked out for all the dates that.
