Overview

The Arashiyama Hanatouro "light-up" is a visually stunning festival held in the chill of December. Spotlights and lanterns are set out to illuminate Arashiyama's Togetsukyo Bridge, and the foothills of the surrounding mountains. The enchanted glow is especially dreamy at the local temples and in the bamboo forest, where pathways lined with tall, looming stalks of bamboo are highlighted in an orange haze. The town celebrates by staying open late, and many stores sell local food and goods to visitors.

I visited Arashiyama during the evening time, and took part in the Hanatouro tour. It was lovely visiting Arashiyama at that time as I got to see the night illumination and took part in a stamp rally. It was also wonderful to view the bamboo...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
