Arashiyama's Bamboo Grove4.3
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!

Very beautiful! We rented a kimono and took a walk around the bamboo path. Once you passed the groove, you will get to an exclusive neighborhood area with beautiful houses and gardens. Highly recommended! I would say that 2 hours is the perfect time to spend there

Too many tourist and lots of Japanese students who are on school trip.
It’s a beautiful pathway with bamboo on sideway. So popular and must-go place in Kyoto. It is a beautiful place for sure but it’s also so crowded that is hard to keep walking without bumping to other people. And you will be very lucky to get a nice photo in a good spot.

Get there early around sunrise to beat the crowds as it gets busy all times of the year. It's a forest of bamboo that's really serene. Fairly easy to get to and it's free. Plenty of places to eat and shops near by but that whole area gets really crowded during the day. There's also a couple of temples and gardens nearby, it's really easy to do this in tandem with other places.

Superb place to visit. Needs at least 2-3 hours to fully explore the forest and also the nearby brook. A fairly simple walk till the forest. To take good pictures without much crowd, please visit during early morning hours 5-6 am.

I have been to this place. Initially I went other side of the bridge, which had a trekking kind of path bounded close to mountain. Though it has beautiful fall colors, the bamboo groove was there. Afterwards with some sign language to local people got the right location. It is before the bridge and inside the park. The site looks good and gives nice view, but too crowded.
