Hankyu kyoto line matsuo taisha station


Matsuo-taisha Station (松尾大社駅, Matsuo-taisha-eki) on the Hankyu Arashiyama Line is located a short walk from both the Katsura River and Matsunoo Shrine in Kyoto. During the late fall, the Momiji trees that line the station provide a spectacular display of red, orange, and yellow leaves. The station is accessible by wheelchairs although passengers of Katsura-bound trains have to use a special gate for wheelchairs.
