This bridge sits just outside the Hankyu-Arashiyama Station (from Osaka), marking the end of the train line, and the start of a different adventure in Kyoto. Just be aware there are two Arashiyama stations, the other Keifuku Dentetsu-Arashiyama will take you to and from Kyoto...More

The view from this bridge is so scenic. On the other hand it's enough to cross the bridge a once. Because there are more attractive places near here.

Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best
eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved
Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji
Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea
houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the
riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature
