Togetsu Bridge and Riverside Area

Boating, hiking, food, temples, and wedding photos spot

The Arashiyama district of Kyoto is one of its most famous and one of its loveliest. Togetsu Bridge is where most people head first. From the bridge, you have many options: Visiting temples in the area, hiking along the river or up into the hills, taking a boat ride, or sitting and relaxing between doing all of the above. After crossing over to the opposite side, I eventually opted for the latter (it was early April), and spent a pleasant hour or so people watching and enjoying a hot drink of amazake while sitting at a little riverside cafe amongst a bunch of cherry trees.
