Ever wonder where the places with the best scenery are in Kyoto? Well, now you can get to know that, by reading this article with the absolute best scenery in Kyoto top 20!

20Togetsu-kyo Bridge


This Bridge in Arashiyama is probably crossed by most of the tourists who go to Arashiyama, as it has to be crossed if you go to Arashiyama from Hankyu Arashiyama Station. Next time you walk on the bridge, remember to take a look at the mountains; there is nothing to complain about the beautiful scenery. The reason why the Togetsu-kyo Bridge only got the 20th spot on our list is that it’s already a bit too popular; it’s hard to enjoy the scenery when it feels like rush-hour in Kyoto Station.

Gion, the most famous of the geisha districts in Kyoto. Here you can find a mind-boggling array of very nice restaurants, many of them both expensive and fancy. There is no better place in Kyoto to walk around wearing a kimono.

17Nene no Michi


Nene no Michi is named after the wife of the powerful daimyo Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Nene. This beautiful street is by Kodai-ji Temple, a temple also founded by Nene, so remember to also stop at the temple to get your Nene fix.

The Kamo River is maybe the best spot in Kyoto for casual walks and jogging, and the views around the river are also nice, especially the yuka terrace platforms that appear by the river every summer.
