Kamogawa, Kyoto

The Kamo river (kamogawa) runs through Kyoto, historically providing an important water supply, but also now allowing people to relax and enjoy nature whilst still being in the heart of the city. It is said the rivers course was diverted to its current location when the palace was constructed in the 8th century when Kyoto was the Heian Capital.

Nice to be out in the fresh air walking down the banks of the Kamogawa river in Kyoto
The bridges of Kamogawa
Looking out from one of the many bridges out to the mountains in the distance
