Getting out to Arishiyama by bus was a bit tedious, but once we stepped onto the ground, we felt like we'd stepped into a magical world. The bamboo forest is a breath of fresh air. We were there over New Years and it wasn't too crowded. Men in pointed Japanese hats pulled rickshaw's, we saw the sunrise on New Years morning on Arishiyama bridge (on a second trip back), and the whole walk was delightful. There's an outdoor bath house that is worth going to, just down the road from the bus stop.
