Hello Japan - Japan Travel Guide


Travel Guide - Arashiyama


The area around Mt. Arashiyama and Togetsu-kyo Bridge is called "Arashiyama". Arashiyama is a district that is worth visiting in Kyoto if you feel like strolling in pleasant natural surroundings.
Togetsu-kyo Bridge is the main landmark in Arashiyama, a few minutes on foot from Arashiyama Station. The Oigawa River which Togetsu-kyo Bridge crosses over was a popular spot among aristocrats for boating and cormorant fishing in the Heian period (794 - 1185). Today, this is still a good spot to watch the cormorant fishing in the evening of July, August, and September. Passenger boats are available to get close to the action.
Arashiyama is one of the most major spots for viewing cherry blossom and autumn leaves in Kyoto. It is said that the name Arashiyama, literary means "Storm Mountain" in Japanese, came from the scene that petals of cherry blossom or maple leaves flying over in a stormy wind.
