Description

Bathe yourself in the rural atmosphere of Saga-Arashiyama, a short train ride from Kyoto. With Mt. Arashiyama as the backdrop, take a morning walk through the Sagano Bamboo Grove, visiting Zen temples along the way. One of them, Tenryuji, is considered Kyoto's best Zen temple. Marvel at Togetsu Bridge, Saga-Arashiyama's landmark, and visit the many shops and cafes in the area. This tour is especially good during cherry blossom season and in the autumn.

You may also add an optional yakatabune lunch cruise after your walking tour! Hop aboard the yakatabune, a classic low barge style boat. Take delight in a scrumptious lunch of traditional Japanese dishes as you sail in cool breeze along the river.
