Togetsukyo Bridge

The Togetsukyo Bridge spans the Oi River, on whose surface is reflected Arashiyama. This bridge, which is famous for its cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, enhances the elegance of Arashiyama. Togetsu means "moon crossing" - and this bridge was so named by Emperor Kameyama because of the resemblance to that phenomenon. The present bridge, designed as if it melts into the beautiful scenery of Arashiyama, was completed in 1934. It's also enjoyable to go boating in this area.
