About Katsura Imperial Villa

Katsura Imperial Villa is one of Japan's most beautiful buildings, constructed in the traditional "shoin" style and set in a magnificent garden. The residence was completed in 1645 for the Katsura Family and is known for its simple, yet striking design featuring beautiful wooden frames and bamboo moon-viewing platforms.

The traditional Japanese garden is filled with glassy ponds, perfectly trimmed bonsai and serene teahouses. As you stroll around the garden you can cross its stone bridges and moss-covered stepping stones. It’s a hotspot for photographers who visit in the afternoon to catch the best light.

Visitors are required to join a guided tour, which follows a scenic walking trail around the main pond. You can also take advantage of audio guides for an informative experience highlighting the area’s rich history. You'll learn about traditional Japanese architecture, the legacy of Prince Hachijo Toshihito and the villa's current status as a cultural treasure.

Getting there

Katsura Imperial Villa is in western Kyoto, a 15-minute walk from Katsura Station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line. Local buses run from Kyoto Station to the Katsura Imperial Villa bus stop in around 20 minutes or you can arrive by taxi.
