After passing through the mountains in a rapid, narrow current known as the Hozugawa, the wide Ōi River flows gently along the northwestern corner of the ancient capital, Kyoto. The bridge across the Ōi, called the Togetsukyō ("reflected-moon bridge"), is famous as a scenic site in Arashiyama, especially during the cherry blossom season.
