20Togetsu-kyo Bridge

 Togetsu-kyo Bridge

Togetsu-kyo 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 this 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
