Togetsukyo, Kyoto

3.9
#52 of 784 in Things to do in Kyoto
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.

    It's a long stretch of beautiful scenery of the river and mountains. Enjoy a good walking workout coming from the Bamboo Grove. Don't go too early if you intend to dine-in at a restaurant, but there are always snacks here and there.

    Good view of the surrounding areas below the monkey park. Nice sparkling view of the river and the green mountains. A few restaurants along the river have a good view from the 2nd floor.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
