Park Kyoto was founded as a sign of friendly relations immediately after signing the agreement on cooperation and development between Kyiv and Kyoto in 1972. 

In honor of the opening, as gift from Kyoto, park received a "five-meter square multi-storey column" – granite pagoda. Religious sctructure, in which usually relics are laid and which has a positive effect on the surrounding area. They can be of different types and forms, in this case it's a Japanese (Zen) stupa.

The architects tried to preserve appearance and symbolism inherent to Japanese gardens. There you can see stone seat of honor, stone cave, stone-guardian, stone-shadow-of-the-moon. Usual people perceive all this as a poetic refinement — no more. For Japanese, these names have a deep philosophical meaning.

There is a pond with waterfall, irises and traditional island in the park, with three ajour bridges. The unique trait of this place given by Japanese lanterns, hill, reproducing outlines of the famous Fuji, as well as selection of trees, each carrying a specific meaning: tree that hides waterfall, the tree, the setting sun tree...

Normal Park. Nothing special. Attractions: the fountain and the arch in the Japanese style.

The Park has been very good. A lot of shops are enough polls. There is a small pond when it was there even fish. The Park is always groomed. But the most important and beautiful, when it is in bloom Sakura!

Парк после реконструкции стал очень даже хороший. Много лавочек, достаточно урн. Есть небольшой пруд, когда то были там даже рыбы. За парком ухаживают всегда. Но самое главное и красивое, это когда цветут сакуры!

The evening is well lit, there are urns and benches. A safe place. A nice bonus: a small bets with fish.

The Park became nicer after he planted cherry, conquered fountain, restored the lake, pastrelli, novcu site. The asphalt in some places is suffering, and it is clear that the repair stopped, but it is definitely a breakthrough compared to what it was.

Парк стал приятнее, после того как высадили сакуры, подчинили фонтан, восстановили озеро, пострлили новкю площадку. Асфальт в некоторых местах страдает, и видно что ремонт остановился, но это однозначно прорыв по сравнению с тем, что было.

This Park is very beautiful once a year -- in may, when the cherry blossoms. The rest of the time is the Playground near the not the most pleasant of the market

Этот парк очень красивый только раз в году -- в мае, когда цветет сакура. В остальное время это детская площадка возле не самого приятного рынка

Very unusual to see a favorite area of Japan in Kiev. This Park is not very well stylized as a Japanese, it's still the best Park in the area.

Очень необычно увидеть уголок любимой Японии в Киеве. Этот парк не очень удачно стилизован под японский, все равно, это лучший парк в окрестности.

It is not bad, and sometimes quite beautiful.
But in the evening, and in the dark it's not safe. Comrade there at night was beaten and robbed.

Днем там не плохо, и местами достаточно красиво.
Но вечером, и в темное время суток там не безопасно. Товарища ночью там избили и ограбили.

Sakura's still very young, but soon will be very beautiful when they grow up. The length of the Park is quite large, so walking on it a pleasure.

Сакуры ещё совсем маленькие, но скоро будет очень красиво, когда они вырастут. Протяженность парка довольно большая, поэтому гулять по нему приятно.

Nice Park with a small lake, lots of benches, gazebos. Along the alleys planted with Sakura which blooms in the spring. Near the highway, but it does not interfere too much. On the other hand the University.

Хороший парк с небольшим озером, много лавок, альтанок. Вдоль аллеи высажена сакура которая цветёт весной. Рядом трасса, но она не особо мешает. С другой стороны универ.
