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.

The small tourist train station is very small with a few shops and a plaza at the frontage. However the area is nicely decorated with kimonos design and becomes lively and attractive. A small footbath is also available there for use by visitors free of...More

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

This train station has been tastefully and extensively decorated with a wide-variety of kimono designs, which when back-lighted in the evening give a surreal feeling. Just a walking distance from the beautiful bridge on the river, this place is well-worth a visit and is definitely...More

After riding the super cute retro train "Randen" we arrived at final stop Arashiyama station. The best point about this station is that it has a hot foot bath (located on the opposite of the entrance, just next to the trains). It is basically free,...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
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
area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
