Photos from a bed & breakfast near the Arashiyama River in Kyoto.
“Arashiyama (嵐山 Storm Mountain?) is a district on the western outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. It also refers to the mountain across the Ōi River, which forms a backdrop to the district. Arashiyama is a nationally-designated Historic Site and Place of Scenic Beauty.” – Wikipedia
We only spent two days or so in Kyoto but could’ve easily (I feel) taken a week because there was so much we missed.
You absolutely want to take your time and soak in the local flavor.
We also visited Kyoto in the summer. So that left us wonder how different everything would look in the fall, winter, and spring. That sounds like a good reason to back, doesn’t it?
