There is a small town called Arashiyama about 15 minutes from Kyoto Station. It is a popular tourist destination, most famous for the bamboo groves.
Since our nephew is really into trains we decided to go on the Saga Torokko Train ride.
We rode the train from Saga Torokko Station to Kameoka Torokko Station, approximately a 25 minutes train ride. The train goes along the Hozugawa River and especially beautiful during the autumn period when the leave change colour.
At the end we bought the photobook of a photo of us on the train. We showed this to our niece who was not able to come along with us, she asked why she was not there.
