(Kamo River in summer time)

This time introduce Kamo River (Kamogawa).
The Kamo River is a river in Kyoto, Japan. Called Kamo-gawa in Japanese, it is approximately 23 km long and covers a land area of approximately 20.7 square kilometers.
The riverbanks are popular walks for residents and tourists.
In summer, restaurants open balconies looking out to the river.

There are pathways on which one can walk along the river.
The water level of the river is usually relatively low; less than one meter in most places.
During the rainy season, however, the pathways sometimes flood in their lower stretches.

In ancient times, the Kamo River marked the eastern limit of Kyoto city. Beyond it lay the Toribeno cremation grounds and the Eastern Hills.
Today the river is a nice place for a stroll, particularly during the cherry-blossom season.
