It is serene, mysterious and magical. The bamboo grove in the Arashiyama district provides a very delightful walk. A 300m-long path, which connects Tenryuji Temple and Okochi Sanso Villa, creates a hypnotic moment with swaying bamboo stalks. Night illumination is also available in December. It is simply gorgeous and breathtaking!

One of the famous attractions in Kyoto. Very well maintained and Foreigner friendly too. Well connected by Bus/Train from the Kyoto station. The souvenir and the food stalls on the main road displays a varied range of items. Have a taste of some the of traditional sweets served here.

Beautiful forest full of attractions for a wonderful walk in the nature. The park/forest is a relaxing place to go unwind in the nature but there are also temples, Zen gardens and monuments along the path which are well worth your time and walk in them. I can recommend to go earlier in the morning (to arrive around 8:00-8:30) if you want to have a nice walk without too many people around as it is not too chilly in the morning and as larger crowds start to arrive around 11:00-12:00

Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is one of Japan unique attraction. Come to think of it, they are just bamboo trees. But they are unique because they are so tall and big.
Tourists are here to get great pictures and to try on the man-driven carriage.
A garden next to the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove boasts some beautiful fragrant flowers. There's a wishing well, too. And if you were thirsty, you can quench your thirst from an antique tap with pure, cool water.

Incredible place! We arrived early in the morning so the place was nearly empty and the sights were like nothing we’ve ever seen before.

Local tip: Grab a coffee from the amazing nearby Arabica Cafe (7 minutes walk) and walk to Arashiyama bamboo forest to warm up your walk. Highly, highly recommended.
