Arashiyama is a 382-meter-high mountain in the western part of Kyoto City. However “Arashiyama” actually includes few surrounding mountains besides itself such as Matsuoyama and Karasugatake that are on the west side across the Oigawa River, and Ogurayama and Kameyama on the east side, and the foot of the three mountains. Thus the entire area including the foot of the mountain is generally called Arashiyama, and the foot of the mountain is a tourist attraction with many temples and shrines.
Approximately a 9 minute train ride from JR Nijo Station.
