This coming October promises to have better weather than last year and autumn activities are already in full swing. For those of you who have not made the trip to Kyoto for the annual autumn opening of the original Kyoto Imperial Palace, I recommend adding this to your itinerary this fall.
This will be about my tenth visit.
English Conversation students at the Smith’s School of English in Kotoen スミス英会話 甲東園 are well aware of how much my wife Yoko and I love going to this site, and although in the past the weather has not always been good, it has always been just as wonderful to go. Indeed, even in the rain, there is a certain aura.
Since the forecast promises to be much better, the crowds will increase accordingly. This will be especially noticable on the Sunday and the Tuesday, when long lines of seniors line up outside their tour buses! Expect and prepare for delays by arriving plenty early!
The dates are: Friday Oct 30th to Tuesday Nov 3rd.
Go on Monday Nov 2nd to avoid the throngs of tour buses. Take the subway north two stops from Hankyu Karasuma.
