The quiet streets of Arashiyama and Sagano will be beautifully lit each evening, allowing you to explore the traditional town after dark. Temples and shrines will be open during the evenings and this will be an amazing chance to see them at their most beautiful. The path includes the Togetsukyo Bridge, Tenryu-ji and Horin-ji temples as well as the famous bamboo forest and will be open from 5pm – 8:30pm. Some areas will only be lit at weekends, however, so please check the site in advance.
