Togetsu-kyo Bridge is the symbol of Arashiyama. The river which flows upstream is calld Oi-gawa(Oi River) and downstream it is called Togetsu-kyo Bridge Katsura-gawa(Katsura River). The bridge is said to have been named togetsu-kyo by Emperor kameyama, because of its shape that resembles the movement of the moon.
Tenryu-ji is a major temple of the Rinzai School. It was built in 1339 on the former site of Emperor Go-Daigo's villa after a priest dreamt of a dragon rising from the nearby river.
The main attraction of Tenryu-ji Temple is the Zen garden dating back to the 14th century. A triumph of design , the garden features a large pond which catches the reflection of the maple trees and large rough-cut rocks on the periphery. It also makes use of "borrowed scenery" from the nearby hills of Arashiyama, which appear to the next tier of the garden. many elements of this garden were prototypes for later gardens built elsewhere.
