What travelers say:

We visited the bamboo forest on a sunny early morning for winter (8 am). It was a quiet walk with few people. The walk to the temple whose name I forgot was very nice. On a sunny day, you can see sun beams coming through the bamboo. It is outside the city of Kyoto, which requires a 30-45 min train ride to arrive. I would recommend going to Kinkaku after the visit to Arashiyama or vice versa, given that both must visit attractions are outside Kyoto and that a bus ride can take you from one to the other.

Arashiyama has be the subject of many poems since ancient times. The cherry blossoms in spring and the red maple in autumn are famous sights. The beautiful scenery of the wild bamboo forest also reveals the unique charm of Kyoto. There are many famous temples and shrines scattered in the scenic area.
