  • Upstream from the elevated waterway nanzen-Ji's masterful Fushimi until varied views downstream. Kyoto City is kamogawa River and East Takase River, it is blending town and river in the Lake Biwa feature I think. Spring and autumn can enjoy views of the fall foliage, such as four seasons.

  • This waterway connects the biggest lake "Biwa" in Japan and the city of Kyoto. Namely providing water with the city. Very beautiful in Spring with cherry blossoms.
  • A very photogenic spot. Many locals visit here every spring for cherry blossoms. There is a famous temple named Miidera nearby, and the History Museum as well.
  • 14 April visit. Along with the nearby Mitsui-Dera Temple's cherry blossom. Leisurely exploring the quaint, very good.

  • Hydrophobic along the way is safe on the way to the Miidera Temple. Spring cherry blossoms are fine. Head down to the predecessors ' efforts.
