The Togetsukyo Bridge is one of the key and popular landmarks in Arashiyama and this place is always packed with visitors to take photos of it. The wooden bridge, spanning over centuries, was built across the Katsura River in front of Arashiyama Mountain, offering nice...More

The Togetsukyo Bridge area is beautiful. Such peace and scenic view. Another recommendation is to go for the Sagano Scenic Train, you will see even more beautiful views. A petty that I couldn't do that. But will definitely go for it if I visit Kyoto...More

The bridge has a history. But, the attraction for us was the river and surrounding area, especially on the side with the entrance to the monkey park. It was so pleasant to walk along this river, encountering some shade, watching the riverboats hauling tourists upriver....More

Western Kyoto
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
