Arashiyama 嵐山

Arashiyama 嵐山 and Kameoka 亀岡 are in the northwest outskirt of Kyoto.
From the town of Kameoka we reached the Arashiyama district via the Sagano Scenic Railway 嵯峨野観光鉄道, which provides a scenic view of the rapids of the Hozu River 保津川. After walking through a bamboo grove, we reached the Zen Buddhist Tenryuji Temple 天龍寺 which was built in 1345. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the town of Arashiyama is the romantic Togetsukyō 渡月橋, beyond which the Hozu River changes its name to Katsura River 桂川.
