Cherry Blossom, a Boat and a River – Arashiyama Kyoto
A friend of mine recommended me to visit Arashiyama and I very much loved it. Not too far away from the busy and cultural city of Kyoto, Arashiyama is a nice escape to get back in touch with nature. During the cherry blossom season, the mountains in the area become spotted with light pink sakura trees. Here you can hire a boat and enjoy the sakura from the river. If there was someone to give massages on the boat it would be even better. Arashiyama is a paradise within reach from Kyoto.
