Kyoto Arashiyama is located a bit far from the center of Kyoto City,
so the most beautiful autumn leaves are seen a bit later in the season.
Arashiyama is dotted with many elegant temples and other sights
that are typical of the ancient capital of Kyoto,
which attracts many tourists regardless of the season.
One of the attractions of Arashiyama is that there are many spots
that are famous for their autumn foliage, and you can enjoy them all day long.
The leaves of trees in Arashiyama, Kyoto usually begin to change color from mid-November,
and the best time to see them is from late November to early December.
The best time to view the autumn foliage varies
depending on the location of the spot and the weather of the year.
Get off at Saga Arashiyama Station, 16 minutes on the Sagano Line from JR Kyoto Station,
or Arashiyama Station, 22 minutes on the Arashiyama Line from Arashi Shijo Omiya Station,
and the brightly colored mountains appear before your eyes.
