Kiyotaki district is a great place for hiking within walking distance from Arashiyama
Kiyotaki is one of the few areas in Kyoto where you can take refuge from the hotness of Kyoto’s summers. Kiyotaki is close to the Arashiyama and Sagano areas, and is known for the beautiful murmur of its rivers. There is a hiking course by the ravine that takes about an hour to complete. The red Toen-kyo Bridge is especially beautiful in autumn when autumn leaves surround it from all sides. The mountains change color during the year from spring green to red and yellow in autumn, to white in winter. The rocks and nooks of the river offer a harsher view compared to the mountains, but together they form a view that is sure to put you in a zen-like state.
