Cycling Kyoto's Arashiyama
Storm Mountain's Fresh Air and Verdant Scenery
Togetsukyo Bridge framed by dramatic mountains.
Category: Historic sites, Sight seeing
The most enjoyable and convenient way to explore Arashiyama is by renting a bicycle. These are available around the train station area. You can select from several options ranging from an hour to a full day, on either a standard or an electric bicycle. Your choice ultimately depends on how much you want to explore the Arashiyama area, during your time in Kyoto. When you rent a bike, you will be given a map of the area which you can follow, allowing you to explore all the different places at your own leisure. Bear in mind that the area east of Togetsukyo Bridge and the souvenir shops can get crowded, especially on the weekend afternoons. As Arashiyama is less than 15 minutes minutes north west of Kyoto by Japan Railways, it is a popular spot for day trippers from Kyoto or Osaka. From Higashi Maizuru, near the Maizuru Cruise Ship Terminal, it is about 95 minutes by limited express.
