The view from the peak of the park was fantastic. I visited there in early December and saw the red maple leaves decorated the mountains. No matter how many tourists wandering in the famous bamboo forest, this spot is always calm and refreshing. Easy access...More
By coincidence we went up here and didn’t regret it. Just ten minutes walking from the overcrowded bamboo forest you will find this park which has an amazing view over the valley.
You have to walk up for only five minutes but it’s definitely worth...More
Arashiyama Park comes in two parts: the Kameyama area on the north side of the Katsura River and the Nakanoshima area that is actually an island crossed by the Togetsukyo Bridge. The Kameyama area is easily approached from the walk that runs along the north...More
I would highly recommend exploring the park together with the Bamboo Forest as they are situated next to each other. While Bamboo Forest is the more known attraction the Arashiyama Park offers a longer stroll, relaxation, good view of the river and excellent coffee shop...More
Passed through here from Togetsu-kyo towards the Torokko-Arashiyama scenic railway station. The place is quite pleasant, with a somewhat undulating green landscape. There is an interesting stone tablet inscribed with a poem by the Chinese premier Zhou En Lai.

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
