This place is kind of a tourist trap. Things are more expensive and provides nothing interesting or worth buying. The fish/prawn or whatever fried cakes they offer is horrible. Don't buy.

It is a simple station compared to many others in Japan. Located by the Hozugawa river. There is a shopping / food arcade. The key draw would be the kimono forest which in the day isn't that special but when it lights up at night...More

We went to the Arashiyama Station to see the Kimono Forest from Kyoto Station. While only a half hour train ride and the village of Arashiyama is a nice little town, the Kimono Forest loses a lot in the daylight. Some of the "trees" under...More

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best
eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved
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
riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature
lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The
