The beautiful luxurious sight seeing, the soothing sound of water and nature, the romantic train ride. It's a small trip to back to Meiji Era, with it's beautiful old fashioned stores and food stalls. You have kimono rental, rickshaw rides.
Although, if you're interested in having a seat for the Sagano romantic train ride, book with 2 weeks in advance. Otherwise you won't be able to make it.

The Togetsu-kyo Bridge was one my most favourite spots that I visited in Japan... I am so happy I came to this location. I would highly recommend this location to anyone who is looking for amazement and history to unfold right in front of your eyes. Just DO It...

Beautiful scenery. Start early to miss the crowds. About 50 mins train ride away from Osaka requiring transit line changes. One way fare is about 600 yen.

Do not miss this part of Kyoto. Too much details. 1 - 2 hours research needed. Book a room in the area for one night preferably. Even more for passionate travelers.

Buy the Furikake at the stand where they offer samples.. my god. Also the matcha cookies in the cafe after the bridge toward the monkeys is amazing. 600 Yen for 9 cookies.. you won't regret it.
