Kyoto Garden (also known as Kyoto Garden Condominium) is an old condominium nestled within lush greenery of Bukit Antarabangsa hilly side. It is situated neighboring Oakleaf Park, Sinaran Ukay and Impian Selatan. This single 15-storey tower condominium comprises about 200 units, with built-ups ranging from 1,100 sf to 1,300 sf.
Location-wise, Kyoto Garden is very well located near to the city centre and few townships such as Wangsa Maju, Melawati and Keramat. Within Bukit Antarabangsa itself, there are Giant Bukit Antarabangsa and few rows of shops. It is merely 20 minutes away from Suria KLCC and Pavilion; and 10 minutes from AEON AU2 Shopping Centre (Jusco) and Wangsa Walk.
Nearby schools to Kyoto Garden are Adni Islamic School, SJK AU3 Keramat, SJK Stella Maris, SMK Lembah Keramat and SMK Sri Inai. Besides that, there are a few medical centres and hospitals within short proximity namely Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital, Gleanegles Intan Medical Centre and Klinik Kesihatan AU2. Accessibility wise, there are 2 access roads towards MRR2; via Bukit Antarabangsa and Sering Ukay. From MRR2, it is well connected to Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE), Jalan Ampang and Jalan Setapak.
Kyoto Garden is a nice place to call home, as the place is really quite and breezy. The greenery surrounding the place is very eye-soothing and the air here is always fresh. There are only few places within Klang Valley that offer similar living experiences such as Bukit Antarabangsa, Seputeh, Kemensah, Wangsa Maju and Kenny Hills.
Despite of having a very fancy Japanese name, Kyoto Garden is not well-maintained as Japanese always do. Its paint looks very terrible and faded from the outside. Most of the facilities are just so-so and some of them cannot be used. One of the main issues in the area is landslide. Well, there have been several landslides happened in the area. The closest one to Kyoto Garden was in 2008 where it happened in Taman Bukit Mewah, merely 400 meters away from it.
Comparing it to its next-door neighbor Oakleaf Park, Kyoto Gardens seems more private and quite even though it is older and looks like over two decades of age. In the other hand, Oakleaf Park is a high density medium-end condominium. In terms of facilities, there are plenty more facilities offered by Oakleaf Park, as it offers swimming pool, tennis court, gymnasium and kindergarten to name a few.
