Many of Kyoto’s key attractions are close to Arashiyama, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Among the most interesting places to see are the fabulous Arashiyama Monkey Park and the fantastic Shigureden. Also, well worth the effort are Tenryuji Temple and Togetsukyo Bridge.
Nearby Nishikyogoku Athletic Stadium is the perfect place to experience Kyoto’s passion for soccer, and to see local favorites, the Kyoto Sanga FC, in action. Be sure to wear purple and white, the colors of the Kyoto Sanga FC.
When you’re ready to relax after a busy day discovering the delights of Arashiyama, check in to one of the area's many bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. The Ryotei Rangetsu, the Kadensho and the Kyoto Arashiyama Onsen Ryokan Hanaikada are just some of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
