Togetsu Bridge This Morning

January 26, 2018

Ever since the Heian period, people were fascinated by the beauty of the moon which lights up the night sky.


Though there are many places in Kyoto for a moon viewing, my best spot is Togetsu bridge.

They say that a retired emperor Kameyama of the Heian period, once expressed his admiration to the moon, saying "this is as if the moon is walking on the bridge toward me!". This is where the bridge's name came from (To=come. getsu=moon).


We, living in this modern world, are still enchanted by the moon. Togetsu bridge today, is getting little bit snowy.
