  • Kyoto: Arashiyama Bamboo Forest Walking Food Tour

    1. Kyoto: Arashiyama Bamboo Forest Walking Food Tour

    Start the tour from the JR Saga Arashiyama station. The Arashiyama district, located west of the Kyoto city center, has long been a scenic leisure spot. Many ancient aristocrats had their villas here 1000 years ago and enjoyed writing literature and poetry. Today, the area is one of the most popular tourist sites in Kyoto.  First, explore the Bamboo Forest and quiet Sagano District, a peaceful neighborhood known for its beautiful maple trees. Then, visit Tenryu-ji temple which was built in 1339 by the Shogun Ashikaga in memory of the Emperor Go-Daigo and was a complex of more than 100 buildings. They were mostly destroyed by fires and civil wars over the years, but the traditional garden remains in its original form, designed by the monk Muso. Enjoy walking in the landscaped garden. After walking, taste Japanese croquette, leek pancakes, and sweet potato. Then, head over to the Togetsu...

Excellent food and sights tour of Kyoto, by a true local

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Japan! Our tour guide, Yasuna, was very friendly and knew Arashiyama from a young age, so her knowledge of the sights we saw was brilliant. We discovered Arashiyama from a quieter perspective than if we had done the exploration ourselves, so this was a real bonus. The food was delicious and a real insight into local street food. We were only in Kyoto for the day, so we would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wanted to see the sights of Arashiyama in a short space of time. A really fantastic tour

Very personal tour experience
