Welcome to The Tour Of Katsura Imperial Villa
Hello. I am Gardening grandpa.
I am really interested in gardens full of Japanese beauty. They take my breath away. I went to Katsura Imperial Villa where I had been longing to visit for a long time the other day. I would like to share the pictures I took there and I made the internet site to introduce the palace to all of you and of course for my memory.
