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.
