Arashiyama

Arashiyama

The region called Arashiyama stretches over the base of the western mountains of Kyoto. There are many sights to see, including the famous drawing of a large dragon on the ceiling of Tenryu-ji Temple (which is part of the World Heritage), the walking paths among the elegant bamboo forests, and an old-style locomotive that runs alongside the gorge.
