Area Guide
Lots of natural beauty

Arashiyama & Sagano

Just a little outside of the city center is the spectacular vista of Arashiyama, one of Kyoto’s best views. Located on the western edge of the city, this area has many popular …moresightseeing spots with appealing scenery, like the Togetsu-kyo Bridge and bamboo groves. The beautiful seasonal scenery of the mountains and the gently flowing river in the background will make you forget about the passage of time.

Be sure not to overlook family-friendly spots like Iwatayama Monkey Park, where you can ride a trolley car during the autumn foliage season and see wild Japanese macaques up close.
