Our Vision

Our lives and ways of living have a great deal to do with the plant kingdom. Established in 1933 as a cultivation area for medicinal plants, Kyoto Takeda Herbal Garden (now Takeda Garden for Medicinal Plant Conservation, Kyoto) has gathered numerous medicinal and other useful plants from around the world for experimental purposes. Based on past resources, we are working hard to enhance our functions, such as collection and preservation of valuable medicinal and other useful plants, including endangered species, and support programs for environmental education, in the hopes that the children of future generations can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
