Elopement in Kyoto

If you are looking to have a elopement or full wedding in Kyoto, look no further!  Oukakuen is a wedding venue right in the heart one of the most beautiful parts of Kyoto. Since all of Kyoto is beautiful, that is quite some statement!

Located at the end of the famous Philosophers Walk, a stones throw from Nanzenji and about one kilometer from a personal favorite, Ginkakuji (the silver temple), this is a wedding venue with a difference.

Two Japanese Gardens

If you are going to have a wedding in Kyoto, you may as well have it in a beautiful garden!  Oukakuen features not one Japanese garden, but two: one chic-modern and the other more traditional; it has something for all tastes.

Along with two gardens, it also boasts two large reception halls, catering for either 45 or 70 people. On top of that, there is a reception room for ‘welcome drinks.’

Japanese Garden - Elopement in Kyoto

Well manicured all year round, both gardens will make beautiful backdrops for any wedding.

The traditional garden is something out of a fairy tale, with rustic gates, a pond, stepping stones and small stone bridges, it offers almost an endless choice of backdrops for your wedding photos.

The chic-modern garden, however, will appeal to those with simpler, minimalist tastes, also offering picturesque options.

The beauty of this venue, apart from the aesthetics, is that it can be used for either part of your wedding or all of it. That is, you can use it for just the ceremony, just the reception, or both.  They also have a range of menus,  featuring the very best of Japanese cuisine.

So, whether you want to use Oukakuen for just the ceremony, reception or both, you will be guaranteed and unique Japanese experience!
