What people are saying:

The white sandstone at the entrance of the Kyoto Imperial Palace is spotless, and the moss on the small bridge is very thick, which is the finishing touch. The pavement is covered with small stones to facilitate drainage. There used to be a wooden plank road between the house and the house, but now the wooden plank road has been demolished for fire prevention.
