I went on a day trip to Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan with my husband and my family-in-law. Arashiyama means stormy mountain. It’s a historic site with beautiful scenery cherished by many Japanese people. We enjoyed a boat ride down the streams of Oi-gawa (Oi-river) and ate grilled squid which we bought during the boat ride. Oi-river is part of the bigger river called Katsura-gawa.

I am so thankful for the great experience I had. I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone visiting Kyoto in Kansai area in Japan.
