Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is located north from the entrance of the Tenryuji Temple in Sagano, Kyoto. It is densely packed with bamboo stalks that filter in the sunlight and sway with the incoming winds. There is only one road that goes through the middle of the grove. Visitors of the bamboo forest enjoy strolling through the air and wish to capture a photo of the area. You can also ride a bike through the green stalk forest and listen to the sounds of the plant colliding with another. Along the path the bamboo is regularly harvested when the plant has reached its full height. It is then turned into crafts that can be found in the shops surrounding the area.

Depending on the time of day and weather the atmosphere of the grove can change. People say that it is the most attractive when there is rain. In December, the pathway is decorated with traditional Japanese lanterns and is illuminated at night. It is an event known as Arashiyama Hanatoro and is one reason to check out the bamboo grove in the winter. There is a rickshaw service that people can try for about 5000 to 6000 yen to go through the forest.

These tours combine enrichment, enjoyment, and education with time to truly absorb and appreciate your surroundings. Our Deluxe-Plus small group tours are created to cater to those who are interested in having a deeper understanding of Japan's culture.

Ultra-Deluxe Small Group Tours

Tour Japan with the finest accommodations and experiences in groups of 2 to 6 people.

Enjoy more than just sightseeing. These tours will allow you to eat in small local restaurants, visit hidden gems, stay at hotels with limited occupancy, take part in activities available only to small groups, and enjoy more interaction with your tour guides. Ultra-Deluxe small group tours are the ultimate way to visit Japan with hand-picked, top hotels and ryokans (traditional inns) to relax in. Select from a unique range of luxurious cultural experiences that are limited to smaller groups, which is why the maximum group size is 6 guests.

Japan Walking Tours

Travel Japan more flexibly in groups of 10 to 16 people using public transportation.

These tours are ideal for travelers who want more free time to explore their own interests in Japan with the balance of having an escorted tour guide. Go without private coach transportation and opt for using public trains and local buses. Travelers usually stay for at least 2 nights at a destination on a Japan Walking Tour, allowing for a more relaxed and in-depth visit. Your tour guide will give you local advice and tips for things to see and do in your spare time. Experience Japanese culture firsthand with a more flexible itinerary.
