This evening, Satoshi and I travelled to Arashiyama. Arashiyama is on the outskirts of Kyoto and is about an hour from our place by train. I had seen an ad in the train station for a light-up of the Arashiyama area. We usually visit this area during koyo (autumn colors) and during the daytime, so it was our first time to experience a light-up of the area after the autumn colors.

Unfortunately, my digital camera doesn't take good photos at night. I think I don't know about all the settings on it. I'll be willing to accept any type help. The pictures that did turn out were results of using the flash or some lighting.

The weather was nice but very cold and the wind kind of icy. Still, there were TONS of people and at times it seemed like we were standing in line for something when in actuality we were just trying to get from one place to another.

Even if I couldn't capture everything I saw on "film", the light-up was still very beautiful.

Have a nice week.
