What people are saying:

You shouldn’t left out Togetsukyo Bridge on your list when visiting Arashiyama, for it is a center attention of Arashiyama. Having Hozu River at its western side and Katsura River at its eastern side, the bridge gives a serenity atmosphere, while Mount Arashiyama as one of its backdrops makes a magnificent view. The pathway would be very crowd in autumn and spring, when the nature gives its best to everyone who appreciates its beauties. Moreover, many scenic tours are taking place here and the bridge itself gives a picturesque sight, another reason why it becomes one of Arashiyama landmark.

    Historic Wooden Bridge

    If you're in the area of Tenryuji Temple, then it's worth a stroll along the Katsura river and enjoy the view of this historic wooden bridge.

    Not much going for it in winter

    Other than heading to the monkey reserve, there is very little going for the bridge in winter. This is because the background is all grey and not like the pictures one might see in pictures online.
