Sagano Train is made up of 5 coaches. The first 4 coaches are with window, fully opened at both sides for the coach 5 – which they called as “The Legendary Coach”. It is the most popular coach, as you can have the best view in this coach with no blocking from windows. But you can only buy them on the departure day itself. No advance ticket can be bought. We reached Komeoka Torokko station before 8AM, waited for the ticket office to open and exchange our “Car No. 2” ticket with the “Car No. 5”. No extra charges imposed.

Foot bath at Arashiyama Station Attraction

Recently, the foot bath at Keifuku Railway's Arashiyama Station has been regarded as a popular tourist spot. Arashiyama locals and tourists alike use it to relieve their aching feet. It costs 150 yen per person and includes a towel. Warming everything from your ankles down, a ten minute dip in the bath is said to give the best results. It is particularly effective at treating nerve pain, digestive problems, and general fatigue.

Those of us who live in Kyoto are spoilt. As soon as the glorious autumn colour light-ups finish, we get the Hanatouro light-up in Arashiyama. The area was once a pleasure-ground for the Heian aristocracy, when boats plied languidly across the river carrying performers of dance and music for nobles who drank saké, composed poems and dangled their long sleeves in the cooling water.
