The Togetsukyo Bridge, which spans the Oi River, is in one of the best known areas of Kyoto.
Arashiyama sits nestled on the western edge of Kyoto, and is full of beautiful walks and sites.
Togetsu literally means "moon crossing bridge."
The bridge was named by Emperor Kameyama because he thought that is what the bridge looked like.
