Definitely off the beaten tourist path in northern Kyoto, we discovered this lovely lake and park in between two mountains. After boating on the lake and feeding the many friendly turtles, we walked around the landscaped path to meet the koi, the ducks and the geese. We took a different exit and found much more beautiful recreation area behind the Kyoto Conference Center, a quiet neighborhood and a subway station, so next trip we can get here more conveniently.
