Arashiyama, Kyoto


Arashiyama (嵐山, Storm Mountain) is a district on the western outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. It also refers to the mountain across the Ōi River, which forms a backdrop to the district. Arashiyama is a nationally designated Historic Site and Place of Scenic Beauty.
The Togetsukyō is a bridge across the river. This river changes names. It is called Oigawa River in the upper course, Hozugawa River in the middle course, and Katsuragawa River in the lower course.

We visited Arashiyama in September 2018.
