Sagano, Kyoto

(4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
The well established and otherworldly bamboo grove of Sagano conjures images of myth and legend, towering high above your head and splintering the sunlight. Along with the mesmerizing grove (also voted one of the 100 best soundscapes in the world), you'll find picturesque temple buildings to explore, reputedly aiding worshippers in fertility. Explore on foot, by bike, or by rickshaw, or step on board the celebrated scenic train ride--and don't forget your camera for the very photogenic atmosphere. The attraction can get busy, however, so consider arriving early to get a full experience. Work out when and for how long to visit Sagano and other Kyoto attractions using our handy Kyoto vacation builder.

  • 約3-4個小時2017/1的京都嵐山小旅行, 從四條大宮, 乘坐嵐電到嵐山駅, 在嵐山駅享用冰淇淋, 參觀足湯和車站內的小商店, 車站旁有知名的嵐人力車, 我們乘坐一區間, 可以快速的在15-30內遊覽渡月橋風景, 經由竹林小徑 到野宮神社, 車伕在每個景點會協助拍照, 他們的拍照技巧很棒, 我們學習到了在竹林小徑要拍好人像和竹林必須使用由下向上的全景模式才能拍的美喔~ 很值得  more »
  • Speaking of Arashiyama, is a tourist attraction, but is healed heart, followed in the back where the Sagano. Continued drop persimmon Hall, 2 respect hospital and Temple of Nagano. Back had died, a dozen years ago, Sagano bamboo forest white flowers bloom is now worthy of Sagano name wonderful quiet beautiful bamboo forest. It is a holiday many people there a wet blanket, but all the same gratuity.

  • The food is amazing here. Yes, they are expensive. But worth every single yen. It was for me, some of the best Japanese cuisine I have had in a long time. I look forward to eating here in the future.
