Kyoto is famous for the innumerable Japanese gardens with different trees and plants native to Japan, but few people know that there is a magic place in this city where one can see exotic plants from various climatic zones without travelling far. (I’m not telling you not to travel, on the contrary — this place will give you the taste of the world unknown to you, and maybe the motivation to go and see the plants in their natural environment).
We’re heading to Kyoto Botanical Garden, and first of all, like I promised, exotic plants from the Conservatory. I took plenty of photos, and it was extremely difficult to choose only some of them to post here..
Now it’s time for some sun and fresh air!
