Story & Recommendation
The Sagano District is a picturesque area that was loved by the nobles of ancient Kyoto
Heading north from JR Saga-Arashiyama station or from the Togetsu-kyo Bridge and the bamboo forest area, you will find Sagano. Sagano is as beautiful as Arashiyama and has a lot of nature. It is very popular through the year, and many of those who visit Sagano also go to Gioji Temple and Jojakkoji Temple. You should also look around you when you walk from temple to temple. On the way there is the Saga Torimoto area with thatched roof houses and Hirosawa Pond, a famous moon-viewing spot. This area was loved by many an emperor and also by the nobility. Kyoto has many places you only notice if you go for a walk there. The Sagano area has remained unchanged for hundreds of years, so why not pay a visit, I am sure you will fall in love!
