A symbol of Arashiyama, the ‘moon crossing’ bridge has crossed the Katsura river for over 400 years. Whether crossed to reach work every morning, used for famous film scenes or simply to enjoy the views, the bridge is the heart of the town. Restaurants, cafes and shops fill the nearby streets while boats are available to rent in the waters beneath it. During the spring blossoms and autumn leaves the area is particularly beautiful, with the wooden bridge offering an unchanged view from centuries gone by. There are options to rent rowboats and explore the water or take a scenic river boat. During the warmer months many will take drinks and snacks from the nearby stores to enjoy by the water’s edge, resting weary feet in the cooling water. [Images: 1. azu_yamamoto/Pixabay, 2. LCB, 3.
