The area on both sides of the Katsura River that flows through the western part of Kyoto City is called Arashiyama and is a famous tourist attraction in Kyoto. There have been many chanting poems here since ancient times, and cherry blossoms in spring and red maple in autumn are famous as famous spots.
I have never seen such a beautiful place with sunflowers everywhere and deers . will definitely go back again!
we just pass by the bamboo forest and do a hiking into the forest. the Bamboo forest is so beautiful. and after the bamboo we are up to forest. the way trekking to the forest its so peacful and fresh. Our destination is a river inside the forest. After 1 hour we reach, Take a nap besides the river, listen the sound of nature and swiming! it was an awesome trip.
We went to Arashimaya for a day trip. It was overall a fruitful experience with a visit to the famous Bamboo Grove. further down you’ll find Okochi Sanso Garden and Jojjakoji Temple, don’t miss them. The entrance fees’ not that bad considering the picturesque view they offer. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and do not even try to google Bamboo grove, google is not updated. We got lost going to the Bamboo grove. Good thing a kind man helped us.
