About Arashiyama park

Arashiyama park

From my house, I took the Kyoto municipal subway to Uzumasa Tenjingawa station, then I changed trains to Arashiyama railroad(common name:Randen) and arrived at Arashiyama station. It took long time. Arashiyama is very famous among foreigner tourist, and many of them are European people and Chinese people.

I got off the train and went out the station, I walked to the south and I arrived at Togetsu-bridge and Arashiyama park. This spot is famous for cherry tree and pine. The view of Katsura river is also magnificent and there is an impression easily. From there I went to the north, then I walked through the road between clump of bamboo.

There are many Jinrickshas, and they are creating nice taste. There are Tenryu-temple and Adashino-nenbutsu-temple, there are famous temples around Arashiyama, but I think that I will go to them sometime.
