By the Katsura River

A wide path followed Arashiyama’s Katsura River. Below, boats for hire glided up the river, but I walked on that steamy summer day. Luckily, shade from the lush vegetation provided some relief.

Soon I climbed away from the river to Arashiyama Park and zigzagged my way under leafy trees, past stone statues and back to the throngs of people on their way to the same destination as me.
