Title: Arashiyama and Sagano | Bamboo forest | Kyoto Japan


User's Notes:
You do not want to miss this one... You can arrive here by train (see details of how to access the area in this page at the bottom). From the moment you exit the station and see the Kimono Forest you know this place is gone be exciting. The Togetsuko Bridge and the Bamboo forest are the 2 main attractions. Worth the visit. Don't miss!

The area has been a popular destination since the Heian Period (794-1185), when nobles would enjoy its natural setting. Arashiyama is particularly popular during the cherry blossom and fall color seasons.<br /> <br /> The Togetsukyo Bridge is Arashiyama's well known, central landmark. Many small shops, restaurants and other attractions are found nearby
