Arashiyama River, Kyoto

Our B&B right by the Arashiyama River.

“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

Entrance to our suite.

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.

View from our bedroom. Yes, that’s the river on the other side of the bushes.

You absolutely want to take your time and soak in the local flavor.

Arashiyama02
Bath outside, complete with privacy shade. (Just incase the bath inside was too stuffy)

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?
