The view is the real draw at this simple riverside noodle and rice restaurant on the edge of the Arashiyama tourist district.
The food is good enough, but the stunning view is the real reason why many travellers make their way to Arashiyama Yoshimura. If you’re really lucky, you can snag a seat right at the window, in which case your eyes will be filled with the beauty of the Hozu-gawa River and the Arashiyama Mountains.
