Togetsu-kyo bridge, Kyoto prefecture
Togetsukyo bridge spans a river with a different name on each side. West of the bridge it is the Hozu River and east of the bridge it is the Katsura River.
It is located in Arashiyama, a district on the western outskirts of Kyoto.
The name of the bridge, which is famous for its cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, means "moon crossing". The present bridge, designed to meld into the beautiful scenery of Arashiyama, was completed in 1934.
