Arashiyama – Where to go during Autumn leaves season in Kyoto

(update: )   

When in Kyoto in autumn, Arashiyama is a must go place. Here we introduce our recommended fun activities in Arashiyama!

Sagano Romantic Train & Hozu-gawa River Rafting

There’s a trolley train that starts at JR Saga-Arashiyama station, called “Sagano Romantic Train” This trolly train is a train that runs along the Hozu-gawa river between Saga Torokko station to Torokko Kameoka station. All seats should be reserved in this train station.

During the ride, you can see the beautiful view of the mountains and the valley. In the autumn leaves season, the autumn leaves will be illuminated. The train runs slowly (bicycle speed) therefore you won’t miss this beautiful sight. It will be a 25 min. ride to Kameoka station.

To return to Arashiyama, you can take the same train. However if you are interest in other way, there’s a Hozu-gawa river boat ride to return to Arashiyama. It will be a 90min – 120min ride. The ride will be little bit thrilling and fun. And the sight of the colorful mountains from the river is also beautiful!
