Bamboo Grove

The delightful scenery attracted noble families and poets who built their homes in Sagano. Sagano bamboo trail spans about 400m (437 yards) from Nonomiya Shrine, via Tenryuji Temple’s north gate to Okochi Sanso cottage.

Green bamboos shoot up to the sky. The beautiful scene is often in travel magazines, TV shows, and ads, known as Kyoto’s famous landscape. The trees grow straight up and the tops bend over, creating a bamboo tunnel.

Take your time in the dancing sunbeams and the sound of rustling leaves on the tranquil path and leave your hustle-bustle behind. From Tenryuji Temple’s north gate to Okawachi Sanso cottage, a slight slope goes up. You can gaze down at the bamboo grove from the top of the slope, which is a popular photo spot.

There is a rickshaw path without a fence. Stop a rickshaw and try a ride.
Every December, during the Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro, the bamboo grove and the surrounding area are lighted up into a dreamy world. Temples in the neighborhood are open for your visit as well during this festival.

    竹林步道很像電影版臥虎藏龍的情節之一。

    從龜岡車站搭乘觀光小火車到嵯峨野,出車站後就是幽靜的竹林步道,步道旁邊就是世界遺產天龍寺。
