Togetsukyo, Kyoto

(3.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Designed specifically as an unobtrusive crossing point, Togetsukyo not only spans the river but also offers sweeping views of the lush valley surroundings. Finished in 1934, the bridge features an unassuming and simplistic design of stilts and railings, and draws plenty of visitors thanks to its wide-open panoramas. You can cross the bridge to enjoy the vista, or look down into river waters to spot schools of koi fish. Keep in mind that cars use the bridge as well, so be conscious of traffic while taking photographs. To visit Togetsukyo and other attractions in Kyoto, use our Kyoto travel itinerary maker.

  • Togetsu-Kyo, surrounded by beautiful mountains, on the left bank of Arashiyama Katsura River (North) and on the sandbar in-between Island Park bridge, 155 m. It is one of the most famous sights of cherry blossoms and fall foliage sites in Arashiyama, Kyoto.
