Kamo River is a popular river that flows through the center of Kyoto. Featuring a beautiful landscape with clear water, the river is lined with walking paths and cycling paths, and couples can often be seen snuggled up on the banks as waterfowl play and hunt in the riverbed. It is particularly beautiful in cherry blossom season as the cherry trees on both banks spring into bloom and egrets play in the river. In summer, traditional Kawatoko cuisine at the riverside restaurants gives visitors a rare taste into the life of Kyoto.

The best place for Kyoto cherry blossoms at present: Kamogawa
The temperature in Kyoto is generally low this spring, and the flowering period has been postponed for a long time. If you happen to be in Kyoto, it is recommended to go to Kamogawa, which is Kyoto cherry blossom so far. The best place to open, when we go is cloudy, it is already beautiful, it is recommended to go on a sunny day, it will be more beautiful!
Address: next to Kamogawa River Shimizu Gojo Station - Shijo Station
Transportation: Take the bus to Shimizu Gojo Station and walk towards the Shijo Station, which is the most beautiful part of the cherry blossoms.
Kamogawa must be the most enjoyable place I have ever seen in Kyoto.
The houses above Kamogawa are special gazebo structures. On the Internet, this is the way to solve the heat in Kyoto: to set up a gazebo on the river or by the river, put on a mat, and use the water vapor to relieve the heat. I heard the buzz of the stream.
If I can live in Kyoto, then it must be Kamogawa. In the morning, you can walk and jog around the river. In the evening, you can watch the sunset by the lake, while blowing the cool breeze; when the night falls completely, you can also enjoy the warm yellow light on the river bank.
Of course, there is a restaurant by the river. From the Erqiao Bridge to the Wuqiao Bridge, there are more than 90 restaurants on the riverside. The guests in the restaurant are accompanied by the moonlight. You can drink tea and taste the dishes on the platform, and you can touch the cold water in the river. Don't mention more than you want.
The daily life of Kamogawa, casual and lazy. This is the most charming place in Kamogawa.
: Take the "Keihan Main Line" and get off at "Okamachi Ryushu", "Sanjo", "Gion of Shibuya", "Kyoto Marutamachi", "Shimizu Gojo", and "Dongfu Temple".
Kamogawa is a first-class river that represents 31 kilometers in Kyoto. The water of this river is very clear and flows through the central part of Kyoto. Since ancient times, residents have lived on both sides of the river, especially the West Bank and the South Bank. You can see this river from the garden, the other side is the izakaya that does not open the door during the day, and the other side is running, cycling, fishing, feeding pigeons. . . Seeing that the grandfather and grandmother are feeding the wild ducks, we also fed the pigeons. As long as you have food on hand, the pigeons will naturally be close to you. Kamogawa is really beautiful. I didnt find it when I came to Kyoto. The river is still in full bloom, the sakura, the river flows quietly, the wild ducks and the fish play in the water, and occasionally a few egrets fly, such a picture, I will experience it.
Couples sitting side by side on the banks of the Kamogawa River are often referred to as "duck lovers (ducks)." In summer, the distance between couples will be shortened, and in winter, the distance will be opened again. However, no matter how the number increases, the interval between couples or people will become equal spaces. This phenomenon is sometimes called "duck". The law of Sichuan and other intervals." What's even more fun is that there is even a saying that "Kasumawa's 3 meter rule" directly digitizes the specifications of the equal compartments, separated by 3 meters from each other, hahaha!
