Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro 2015


Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro 2015 is a nighttime spectacle in the Arashiyama district of Kyoto, featuring illumination and flowers, that is to start this Friday, December 11 and run until Sunday December 20.

Hantouro (花灯路) means "light and blossoms pathway" in Japanese. A five-kilometer (three mile) walkway through the beautiful Saga Arashiyama district of Kyoto is lined with flower arrangements, provided by the Kyoto Ikebana Association.

A particular highlight is the illumination of the historical and scenic Togetsukyo Bridge.

From Nonomiya Shrine to Okouchi Sanso Villa, both sides of the walkway will be illuminated, creating a magical, unforgettable vista.

Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro 2015 will take place every day between Friday December 11 and Sunday December 20, 2015, between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The event is sponsored by Rohm Semiconductors.

  1. I was JUST there and completely missed this. What a crying shame. I'm hoping to go back when it snows to see Tenryuji. I've been told it's spectacular.
