Let’s have a valuable experience at Kameoka, a well-kept secret place of Kyoto
Gion, Arashiyama, and Uji in Kyoto are popular with tourists. However, there are many other interesting places in Kyoto, and you’ll always find new attractions no matter how many times you visit. I’ll introduce some features of Kameoka for those who want to have a new experience.
There are a lot of great activities that tourists enjoy in Kameoka city. The Sagano RomanticTrain, the Yunohana hot-spring area, and Hozu river rafting. Seasonal flowers are always in bloom along the Hozu river. The natural landscapes are marvelous, and you’ll find that nature offers a different exhibition each season. I recommend visiting during all seasons, but my favorite is spring, because you can see beautiful rows of cherry trees.
Let’s walk through a tunnel of beautiful cherry blossoms!
Yawaragi no michi, or ‘relaxing road’ along the Nanatani River, is a popular area to view cherry blossoms by the local people.
There are about 1,500 cherry trees are planted along this 1 kilometer road. You will feel like your surrounding by cherry blossom petals.
The best time to see cherry blossoms on Yawaragi no michi is in early April. The cherry blossoms around here will be in full bloom around April 2nd to April 8th, but it depends on the weather and temperature.
It’s also a nice spot for a picnic with a playground for children. I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time with your family and friends!
Cherry blossoms are romantically illuminated in the evening.
Cherry blossoms in the day time are beautiful, but you’ll feel another beauty of cherry blossoms at night. During the cherry blossom season, the trees on Yawaragi no michi are illuminated in the evening. The cherry blossoms against the night sky is awesome, so it is a great spot for dating.
How to get to Yawaragi no michi
Getting to Yawaragi no michi, you’ll take the JR Sagano Line (San-in main line) from Kyoto station and get off at Kameoka station. Take the Kameoka Furusato Bus from bus stop #6 at the North exit of Kameoka station and get off at the Nanatanigawa bus stop. There are more buses available during the cherry blossom season.
If you want to enjoy viewing beautiful cherry blossoms while relaxing, I highly recommend Yawaragi no michi! The best time to see all the cherry blossoms is during the early morning. There is no doubt that it’ll be an unforgettable memory for you, of the Japanese spring!!
