My rating is based on my visit in Summer season, it may be scenic during cherry blossom or with fall colors but it really has nothing special in July, not to mention crowd... It is a nice short walk if you happen to visit Arashiyama.

After visiting the bamboo forest we went here. Here it’s also very crowded and in my opinion I don’t know why. The bridge is nice to see but nothing special. It’s more nice to walk along the river and watch the birds in the water.

Sitting on the bench along the park and overlooking the bridge is such a bliss. Watching the seagull, ducks and birds playing above the water helps to temporarily forget about the hustle and bustle in the city.

Togetsukyo Bridge was the landmark of Arishiyama. There were many activities around including rickshaw riding, sakura watching, scenic strolling, eating, boat cruising and photo-taking.

This beautiful bridge crosses over the river and connects the main part of Arashiyama to the Monkey Park. We enjoyed crossing bridge both by foot and by bicycle. At night there are lanterns running along the bridge that light up. It's a very pretty bridge...More

This is a nice and busy bridge over the river in Arashiyama. Good to visit the bridge for photos. Its best to visit in the morning to avoid the crowd.

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

houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the
riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature

The trees are bare in winter. It is not colorful like spring and autumn. But there are many sightseeing spots such as temples, shrines, bamboo forest, and monkey parks around Arashiyama.
