Unfortunately we came here on a Saturday (but I can imagine it's the same on any day), the place was packed with tourists and visitors... But nevertheless it was nice to see the town and the surrounds whilst we were in the area.. Plenty of...More

I had my head buried in a guidebook, reading about my destination — Tenryu-Ji Temple— when admiring exclamations filled the Randen Railway car. It had entered Arashiyama Station, the end stop for the temple, and an amazing kimono forest greeted passengers. Hundreds of cylinder-shaped poles,...More

It is s small train station but well decorated with many different kimono stands which make it stand out. There are a few shops and we have our breakfast at Tully cafe.

This place is kind of a tourist trap. Things are more expensive and provides nothing interesting or worth buying. The fish/prawn or whatever fried cakes they offer is horrible. Don't buy.

It is a simple station compared to many others in Japan. Located by the Hozugawa river. There is a shopping / food arcade. The key draw would be the kimono forest which in the day isn't that special but when it lights up at night...More

This train station has been tastefully and extensively decorated with a wide-variety of kimono designs, which when back-lighted in the evening give a surreal feeling. Just a walking distance from the beautiful bridge on the river, this place is well-worth a visit and is definitely...More

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
