Enchanting Arashiyama

Outside Kyoto lies a district that's a breath of fresh air to explore with a loved one

- +

For a romantic, easy-going trip with the significant other, minus all the hassles, make sure you visit Arashiyama, a district in the west of Kyoto, Japan. Considered an esteemed holiday spot by the nobles of the Heian period, today quaint Arashiyama is one of Kyoto's most popular tourist destinations.

Start bonding by grabbing tickets for a boat ride down the Hozu River from Kameoka to Arashiyama. To keep the touristy feel alive, boat rides should never be left out, no matter how mundane they seem. It may seem ho-hum to just sit there passively, but feeling the fresh air on your face and being surrounded by stunning sights can really bring you a breath of new life. Or it must be something about the water that brings life into one, both symbolically and literally.
