Along the Atago-kaido Byway are found thatched-roof homes and one of the Shinto arches that light up the summer evening skies of Kyoto as part of the five mountain bonfires originally intended to send the spirits of lost persons to heaven.
Moreover, it is a subtle and profound world with stone Buddha statues and arhats in places such as Adashinonenbutsu-ji Temple.
A stroll along the Arashiyama Hanato-ro Course takes you to Tenryu-ji Temple, shrines and typical streetscapes of Kyoto connected by beautifully lit-up flowers and fields to create the aura of Japanese sentiment. The area has become a new attraction in Kyoto.
