Katsura Imperial Villa and Fushimi Inari

Katsura Imperial Villa is too beautiful to express! In the early Edo period, Prince Toshihito, who excelled in both literature and the martial art from childhood, built the Villa. That is both tasteful and simple. We need to apply for the Imperial Household Agency to get in. I will apply for you by postcard. It takes an hour to see the villa by the special guide of the villa. The fee is free.
