泼皮牛二Starting from Osaka, take the JR Shin Express to Kyoto and then to Kameoka. Ordinary trains pass through Lanshan Sagano Sanzhan Road, and it is Guigang Station. After getting off the bus, walk for about 10 minutes, and you will reach the starting point of Hozu River rafting. After all, not many people come here to play. Tickets are bought as you go. After buying the tickets, there are just the last two vacancies of the upcoming boat. We set off immediately after boarding. The rafting ticket price is 4,100 yen per person. According to the current conditions of the day, it usually takes about 90-120 minutes to reach the Arashiyama Togetsu Bridge downstream. There are three boatmen on each boat, one who is propeller, rower and one who steers. Every once in a while, the three people change roles. The paddling faces everyone, along the way, I will introduce you to the scenery along the way, and the atmosphere is also very active, and there is constant teasing along the way, and the boats are full of laughter. This is completely different from the drifting that I have experienced in the past. For example, in the Jiuqu River rafting in Wuyi Mountain, the shipping union blatantly asks for tips. If they don't give a tip, they will show their faces and give no explanation along the way. When I met a boatman in Danxiashan, no one would buy it and no more explanation, etc. Moreover, Japanese boatmen are not only commentaries along the way, but also communicate with the people on the boat, and make some very fancy boating moves. Sometimes, they will pretend to miss, as if they are about to fall off the boat, and then stand upside down on the bow, which drew everyone's exclamation and laughter. The water in the Hozu River is very clear, and there are some rapids and shoals along the way, which are a little exciting but not too scary. Their life jackets are also very interesting, not like the vest we wear here, but just a belt, tied to the waist like a belt. When the end is approaching, the water flow slows down, and there will be boats for snacks and snacks coming up, and you can buy some skewers and other things to eat. Personally, Hozu River is more suitable for the red maple season in late autumn, when the red leaves on the coast of the mountains are extremely beautiful. . .

RalineSThe Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is one of Japan's most incredible sights. Our walking tour route allows you to enjoy the Bamboo Grove and the surrounding sights while avoiding the worst of the crowds.Located about 7km west of downtown Kyoto, Arashiyama is one of Kyoto's most popular sightseeing districts. The heart of the district is the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, a mesmerizing grove of thousands of tall bamboo plants.

Gautam1really enjoyed our time visiting the temple. There is so much to see at this small location that it is easy to find the time passing quickly.You can visit on your own or with a site guide and learn about the history of this place.I have read in the reviews that some have found it crowded, but with a little planning ahead of time you can avoid the busier times durning the day. Also you an call ahead to see if they have any tours booked that day and if so when.Staff were poliet and very helpful.Even with the cheapest camera you will wind up with beautiful photos.
