Kita no Arashiyama

A Charmingly Rustic Village at the Foot of Mt. Arashiyama

Mt. Arashiyama in Asahikawa shares a namesake with the better-known location in Kyoto due to the two mountain’s featural similarities. At the foot of the mountain sits “Kita no Arashiyama,” a quaint forested area filled with craft shops, gardens, and tea houses that are open year-round. The collection of artisan pottery, glass art, wooden crafts, and dyed fabric goods on sale makes this a great place for souvenir shopping. With tours and craft workshops available, visitors will never be at a loss for something to do at this charming little mountain spot. Once visitors have worked their fingers sore doing crafts, they can relax in the area’s fashionably rustic café.
