My friend and I bumped into this place when we went to see the bamboo forest in Arashiyama and it was just what we needed after a day of walking in the warm spring rain! It was 100¥ deposit for the towel as far as I remember, but you can keep it if you want (as I did). Perfect way... More

The onsen is in between two train tracks at the end of the train station. I would never have expected an onsen in this kind of place. My first thought was really skeptical, but after soaking my feet in the hot water all and relaxing I realized that the place had some special atmosphere only because of it's rare location.... More

It's located inside the Arashiyama Station, right next to the middle platform. Originally planned to go in hope to sooth the soring muscles after all the long walks and cycling, but it can only accommodate 8-10 pax. We were stunned when we saw how packed it was. Glad we had had a look before we paid.

Who would have thought, foot hot spa inside a train station? We were amused and decided to try after a long walk in the Bamboo forest and Tenryuji. Sure enough, it was a wonderful experience. The hot spring food spa is somewhat hidden at the end at the end of the train platform covered with wooden planks and behind a... More

For 200 yen, you get a towel and unlimited time at this foot bath. It's a very unique experience as you have the view of the train tracks, the kimono forest and a little bit of the hill.

Ashiyu means a foot bath. The water was a little dirty. (There's a place to wash your feet afterwards so its ok) it was a relaxing place. It is located on a platform so you can watch the trains while relaxing. It cost 200 yen.

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
