Arashiyama Bamboo Grove

Transport yourself to a moment of enchantment with a stroll or a bike ride through the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. 

This sprawling, bamboo forest-lined path is one of the city’s most photographed sights

Located on the western outskirts of Kyoto, Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is a sprawling, bamboo forest-lined path that's also one of the city’s most photographed sights. As such, it's best visited early in the morning before the swarming crowds form. If you’re visiting in December, be sure to catch the Arashiyama Hanatouro Festival, during which the pathway is illuminated with lanterns and a showcase for arranged lighting art pieces.
