Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro

Hanatouro is an event where the ancient capital of Kyoto, which has 1,200 years of tradition, will be lit up with millions of beautiful lights. This artistic event is presented with a fantastic atmosphere.

Sagano – Arashiyama Area, a place known for being rich in nature, holds Hanatouro every December. After sunset when the streets became dark, 2,500 Andon, oriental lamps, are installed on the streets and will be lit up all at once. The bamboo forest, Togetsukyo Bridge across the Katsura River as well as historical temples and shrines will all be illuminated.
