Autumnal leaves-viewing at "Arashiyama Momiji Festival"

Speaking of Arashiyama, it is an autumn leaves viewing spot that has been loved since the Heian Period.

The autumn leaves around Togetsukyo Bridge and each shrine and temple are an unforgettable sight once you see it.

The most exciting event is the "Arashiyama Momiji Festival" which will be held on November 11th.

The elegant event reproduces the dynasty's boat parade on the river.

A boat in which a koto (Japanese harp) is played, another boat in which people in Heian Period clothing are dancing, and many boats carrying the name of shrines and temples of Arashiyama look like a picture from a dynasties scroll.

You can meet the autumn scenery that is special for that day.
