What is Arashiyama Park

Arashiyama Park is a prefectural park located in the scenic Arashiyama district of Kyoto and encompasses both sides of the Togetsukyou Bridge which crosses over the Katsuragawa River.  It is surrounded by Kameyama-chiku (District), Nakanoshima-chiku and Rinsenji-chiku. At Kameyama-chiku on the southeast side of Ogurayama Mountain, cherry and maple is planted in the forest of red pine and it has become a natural forest full of mountain azalea.  To the west, is a scenic overlook of Hodukyou Ravine, to the east is Emperor Gosaga and three succeeding Emperors’ cremation mound.  

Nakanoshima-chiku was developed on the sandbank of Katsura-gawa River and is famous for cherry blossoms.  The area is visited by many tourist during cherry blossom viewing season.  On the opposite side, in Rinsenji-chiku, old red pine has been planted and it is a great place to view Togetsukyou Bridge with Arashiyama in the background.
