Story & Recommendation
A thrilling attraction in the beautiful scenery of the great outdoors
We recommend that if you visit the tourist spot Arashiyama, that you take part in the Sagano Romantic Train & Hozu-gawa River Boat Ride. The Sagano Romantic Train is a diesel train that runs through the valleys. From the windows you can see nature that’s beautiful all year round and picturesque mountain streams running under bridges. A one way trip takes 25 minutes. The entrance to the Hozu-gawa River Boat Ride is only 20 minutes by bus from Kameoka Torokko Station. Hop on a little boat in the middle of the great outdoors, surrounded by mountains. The thrill of descending the fast waters of the mountain river is outstanding. A trip takes around 2 hours. The final stop is close to Arashiyama Togetsukyo. From there you can enjoy a delightful stroll in Arashiyama. ▼Click here for Writer's Blog http://sharing-kyoto.com/Blog/b_003/
