Description

Take a tranquil morning walk through serene Arashiyama, visit Tenryuji Temple, and walk around the Sagano Bamboo Grove. Make your trip more memorable with a river lunch cruise on a yakatabune (Japanese barge-style boat) along the scenic Hozu River. Nestled beneath the stunning Arashiyama Mountains of Kyoto, Sagano-Arashiyama is one of the most scenic destinations in Kyoto. Your morning stroll begins at Tenryuji Temple, home to one of the most acclaimed Japanese gardens in Kyoto. Stroll through the Sagano Bamboo Forest and visit Jojakkoji Temple. After crossing the scenic Togetsukyo Bridge, you can opt to have a tasty Japanese-style lunch aboard a traditional yakatabune river cruise boat, the perfect way to drift downstream. The region comes alive in bursts of colors and flowers during autumn and spring, creating an idyllic venue for strolling.
