Arashiyama Bamboo Grove
Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is a famous tourist destination at Arashiyama connecting Nonomiya Shrine all the way up to Okouchi-Sanso. There are many bamboo groves in the Sagano area, which is a place known for its tranquility and natural beauty and where residences and cabins for the nobles during the Heian period were built. The lush bamboo forests here stand tall, as if they could reach the sky, with sunlight seeping in between the leaves. A stroll through a walkway by a fence of brushwood is enough to breathe new life into you. In 1996, it was chosen by the Ministry of Environment as one of 100 scenery spots in Japan that need to be preserved. At the annual Arashiyama Hanatouro festival held in early winter, the walkway of the bamboo grove is illuminated at night for tourists to meander through this beautiful and mystic arrangement. It is also frequently seen in TV dramas, movies and commercials.
