Arashiyama Park

Romantic Scenic Spot

Arashiyama is famous for its cherry blossom in the spring and maple trees in the fall, and has been a scenic spot since the Heian period. Its view, which includes lush green mountains and rivers harmonized with the Togetsu Bridge, is cherished by people across the country.

The Atago Mountains lie to the north-west of Kyoto city. The Katsura River which weaves through these mountains originates in the Tanba Mountains, and becomes the Hozu River around Hozu-kyo in Kameoka before becoming the Oseki River in Arashiyama. Arashiyama Park is near Hozugawa canyon, and consists of 3 districts: Kameyama, Nakanoshima, and Rinsen-ji.
