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.
