About this sight

Opened in 1995, this spacious park, about a kilometer west of Kyoto Station, features areas for playing ball games, walking courses, children's playgrounds, a tea house, traditional gardens and small ponds. Umekoji Park is also the site of the former Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum which has now been incorporated into the Kyoto Railway Museum. The Kyoto Aquarium is also accessible from this park.
