A popular tourist destination in Kyoto, Arashiyama District is known for its famous bamboo grove. The express train on the JR Sagano Line got us there in a 15-minute ride from Kyoto Station. We stepped down to the riverside of the Oi River and looked up to see the beautiful landscape of the wooden Togetsukyo Bridge over the river against backdrop of green mountains. It looked just as an old Ukiyo-e woodprint.

Location: Saga-Nakanoshimamachi, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto Pref.
