I can’t believe I’ve never visited Arashiyama in Kyoto. Arashiyama is located in the city of Kyoto and holds numerous attractions including; a bamboo forest, souvenir shops, a monkey park and numerous temples. I didn’t go to the monkey park but I did visit a few temples, walk through the bamboo forest and visit a couple shops. This place can sometimes get pretty packed, so it’s best to come early in the day if you’re planning to visit.
My favorite part of visiting Arashiyama was walking though the Bamboo forest. This place is absolutely majestic. I had no idea bamboo could grow so tall. It’s a great place for pictures. For directions on the best way to get there visit the link above.
