Togetsukyo Bridge

Once a destination for nobles, the Arashiyama district of Kyoto boasts small-town charm and beautiful mountainside views. Today, the popular neighborhood attracts tourists and nature lovers. The scenic neighborhood’s iconic landmark, Togetsukyo Bridge spans the Katsura River and provides panoramic views of lush mountainside foliage, gentle river swells, and local fisherman navigating the shoreline. The bridge’s history extends back 400 years and has been featured in many historical films.

Crossing Togetsukyo Bridge is a highlight of any visit to Arashiyama. From feeding carp fish over the railing to enjoying the splendor of cherry blossoms in the spring and fall foliage, the bridge is a gateway to a simple, stunningly scenic way of life. Another popular way to see the bridge is by a boat ride along the river.

Practical Info

The bridge is a one-minute walk from Arashiyama Station on Keifuku Railway. From Kyoto Station, Arashiyama is a 5-10 minute wealk from Saga-Arashiyama Station. Walking across the bridge is free. The best times to visit are in the spring and fall, when foliage is in bloom and colors on the mountainside are most vibrant.
