What you can expect

Travel deeper into Saga-Arashiyama's villa landscapes & Arashiyama bamboo forest with a local guide

-Let's start walking from the non-touristy area of Arashiyama and feel Kyoto's local atmosphere

Saga-Toriimoto district is a national preservation district where you feel like you are stepping into the past. Most tourists flooding to Arashiyama miss this beautiful area. Our local guide will explain the history and culture of the area. Especially in the morning, it is really refreshing to walk around this beautiful area and along the way stop by some cool traditional shops in the street.

-Visit Tenryu-ji, the World Heritage Temple, Peaceful Garden and head to the beautiful Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

Afterwards we will enter through more well-known spots in Saga-Arashiyama, visiting UNESCO world heritage temples and the very famous bamboo grove. Nature in Kyoto shows different faces for each season, so don't miss it! You will get insights into these areas and take memorable photos in the bamboo forest!

-At the end of the Nature tour, Kyoto-style traditional lunch awaits you

After walking and visiting the temple, you must be ready for lunch! let's have beautiful Kyoto-style lunch! You will be amazed by not only the taste but also its beauty!
