This is an awesome experience!
The bamboo forest is quite incredible, although very busy. Would advise going very early if you want to get any good photos without lots of other people.
The monkey park is a fair hike up the hill but worth it. You can feed them and they're everywhere.
There was also a garden park area; very pretty and the ticket included a green matcha tea which was very nice.
The hiking trails give excellent views - overall Arashiyama is a must-see for anyone traveling in Kyoto.

A beautiful place to relax and unwind. The sound of the flowing river, the view of the area and the people around just gives a vibe of tranquility and joy. A place for picnics, meditation, and rest.

It's a nice spot to sit down and relax right beside the famous Togetsu Bridge, right after a nice meal, or just to people watch while enjoying the sound of the river rushing by. It's beautiful to look at the river and bridge, with the backdrop of the mountains that are slightly covered by clouds as well.

A truly beautiful place that is just wonderful to relax and chill out at. With so many great shops for tourists in the area I would recommend anyone in Kyoto. Super accessible and took barely anytime to get there from Kyoto station

Beautiful area with many shrines, bamboo forest, peaceful waters and temples.
Definitely a must see when in Kyoto. Free of charge, but arrive early if you want the forest to yourselves.
