Kyoto Sites: Arashiyama District

Arashiyama is a must-do for anyone who has 4 or more days to spend in Kyoto.

The main landmark of Togetsukyo Bridge is flanked by small shops, restaurants, and provides an anchor for nearby attractions including the Tenryuji Temple, Bamboo Groves and Monkey Park. I recommend hiring a bicycle to get to and from these sites, its not very far to ride and is very pleasant.

The view over Kyoto and monkeys at Monkey Park –Β  there are a number of stairs involved reaching The Park, but it is definitely worth it.
