arashiyama, japan


This was my absolute favorite day trip from Kyoto! Mostly because the autumn leaves had turned and were insanely colorful, making for some amazing photos. There’s quite a bit to do in this town too, so definitely plan for a full day here if you plan to go! It’s a very busy tourist location though, so get there super early if you want photos without a bunch of strangers in them!
