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.
