Kamo-gawa River that flows from north to south ward of Kyoto is loved by both locals and tourists. Two most popular activities around the river are picnic and scenic walking. The riverbanks always seems busy each morning and evening. At morning, people love walking leisurely along the west side of the riverbank, while at afternoon until evening, the riverbank is filled with people who love resting on their worn out body while enjoying the fresh and tranquil atmosphere, which is influenced by Kamo-gawa River in the middle of busy downtown Kyoto. Both free replenishing activities in the heart of Kyoto.
[Scenery] The main river in Kyoto runs through the city from north to south. The quietness of Nijo Bridge, the prosperity of Shijo Bridge, the quaintness of Higashiyama, and the modernity of Kawaramachi are staged on both banks of Kamo River. The green land on the shore is very wide, densely planted with large tracts of cherry blossoms, when the flowers bloom, there is a cloud of red clouds, which should be quite beautiful. The disadvantage is that the buildings on both sides of the strait are generally [interesting] The water trail is very long. At dusk, I walked all the way from Ertiao Bridge to Wutiao Bridge. There are many walking tourists and locals, couples enjoying the scenery quietly, friends chatting side by side, and families happily cycling. There are a lot of diners beside the four bridges and cool beds. [Value for money] There is no charge for walking along the coast. The river is gentle, and there are no recreational activities such as boat cruises.
