Promenade entre les bambous géants à Arashiyama

La bambouseraie d'Arashiyama, aussi connue sous le nom de bambouseraie de Sagano (sagano chikurin), se situe à l'ouest de Kyoto. Particulièrement photogéniques, les lieux donnent l'occasion d'une promenade entre d'immenses bambous.

The bamboos there are truly immense, and their tops reach several tens of meters high. This intensely green, very dense forest lets a few rays of sun filter through in good weather. The atmosphere is unique, relaxing, and almost magical. When the wind blows, you can hear the familiar rustling and squeaking of the stems bending in the breeze. 

It is not possible to get lost in this bamboo grove as visitors are guided on the paved pathway. The path can be quite crowded with visitors during the days thus for those who prefer less crowd, we recommend you make your visit early in the day before the rush of tourists and visitors.

What to do around the Arashiyama bamboo grove?

A visit to the Tenryu-ji temple and its splendid gardens is of course recommended.

After a stroll through the bamboo grove, Kameyama Park is very close: cross it to reach the banks of the Katsura River, equally a nice walk, especially during the koyo (change of season).

From the bamboo grove, you will also have direct access to the Sagano Romantic Train, a very pleasant route of which allows you to admire the valley.

In Arashiyama, do not miss the Iwatayama Monkey Park (saruyama), hosting dozens of monkeys in their natural environment. Here, you are the one caged as you climb the trail leading to the summit in approximately 20-30minutes depending on your pace. Welcome to the land of Monkeys!
