A bridge that is always crowded with cars and people. It connects the Hankyu-Arashiyama Station to the famous Tenryuuji Temple. You can enjoy an amazing view of the river, mountains, and hills while crossing it.

This is an iconic bridge here. It is very crowded with tourists. On the bridge, you will get a nice view of the landscape and old buildings around.

The Togetsukyo Bridge is the central landmark of Arashiyama. I walked the 155 meter bridge in May which didn’t have much happening except lots of tourists. I had missed the beautiful cherry blossoms. I was too early to watch Cormorant fishing in the late summer...More

Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji
Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea
houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the

The trees are bare in winter. It is not colorful like spring and autumn. But there are many sightseeing spots such as temples, shrines, bamboo forest, and monkey parks around Arashiyama.
