Originally, Arashiyama (嵐山) was the place name for the south bank of the Katsura-gawa River (桂川) but it soon came to include the north bank as well for its many famous tourist destinations. Now, Arashiyama refers to the whole area around the Togetsu Bridge (渡月橋), including the Saga (嵯峨) district. Arashiyama is located in the western part of Kyōto, and it has a long and honorable history dating back to when it was the site for country villas owned by the nobles of the Heian Period (平安時代). A stroll around Arashiyama is especially pleasant during the spring season when nature vibrantly accompanies the historical atmosphere of Kyōto.
