“Cultural lecture: Get to know Japanese traditional paintings” held at Murin-an was featured in the major newspapers.

“Cultural lecture: Get to know Japanese traditional paintings” held at Murin-an was featured in the Kyoto Shimbun, KBS Kyoto Broadcasting, Yomiuri Shimbun, Sankei Shimbun and Asahi Shimbun. UEYAKATO planned this cultural series to introduce the works of Jakaku Itoh and other painters of the Jakuchu school in the natural lights, not inside the protective glass cases, and also especially in the Japanese traditional Sukiya architecture. It was an event where the participants could enjoy the popular paintings in the original settings just like the old times, surrounded by the meticulously cared garden.

Murin-an which UEYAKATO takes care and manages as a designated management was featured in The Yomiuri Shimbun.

While affluent tourists to Kyoto are on the rise, in order to make visitors feel the charm of the garden more deeply, we provide special guided tours by experienced gardeners who daily care for the garden along with a translator. We will continue to develop services that convey the beauty of Japanese gardens comprehensively so that we can serve the interests of visitors.

Our staff Yuta Inamoto, who conducts biological surveys, has found flower buds of Petasites japonicus which is a symbol of early spring at the park.  We aim to upkeep the park that lets visitors feel nature that always gets ready for the next season, even in the middle of the cold winter.

Keihanna Commemorative Park, which UEYAKATO takes care and operates as a designated management, was featured in the Mainichi Shimbun. In the article, Loropetalum chinense var. rubra and  Rhododendron reticulatum were reported to have started to bloom a few months earlier than usual. Particularly Rhododendron reticulatum is the symbol of spring in Japanese village scenery so it is rare to observe their bloom this time. You can also spot many signs of seasons throughout the park.

The discovery of a pink cricket-Euconocephalus thunbergi by our staff member Inamoto at Keihanna Commemorative Park was featured in the Mainichi Shimbun. This rare color was thought to have caused by the lack of some pigment, which was discovered in “Suikei-en” area of the Keihanna on 17th July. This rare insect is displayed at the Visitor Center. TV Asahi “Super J Channel” also featured this discovery on November 8 and aired that the colorful cricket is popular especially among children.
