Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro (京都嵐山花灯路)

While many people visit Kyoto from mid to end of November for autumn leaves viewing, If you miss a chance to visit in these period, don’t worry, there is something very exciting still coming up this year.

Kyoto’s Hanatouro Festival is held twice a year: March in Higashiyama area and December in Arashiyama area. Hanatouro (花灯路) means “ path with flower and light”, and literally the illumination lightens up Kyoto’s pretty streets at night during the festival for 10 days.
