Arashiyama (嵐山) Sakura

Arashiyama is a pleasant, touristy district on the western outskirts of Kyoto and also refers to the mountain across the Ōi River which forms the backdrop to the district. Pictured is a quaint river boat just up - stream from the Togetsukyo, the wooden (now partially concrete) bridge that is a landmark of the district. Arashiyama is well known for its brilliant - colorful displays occurring during the changing of the seasons and reflecting in its many waterways.
