“Bamboo Grove at Tenryuji temple.”

Welcome to the stunning Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, a mesmerizing destination where two separate groves merge to form a breathtaking pathway enveloped by towering bamboo trees. Located between the sacred grounds of Tenryu-ji Temple and the JR Sagano-Saiin train tracks, this natural wonder spans 500 meters in length and stretches 140 meters wide.

As you explore this enchanting place, you'll come across Nonomiya-jinja Shrine in the eastern section, a revered Shinto shrine that adds a peaceful and spiritual atmosphere to the surroundings. On the southern edge of the western section, you'll find the exquisite gardens and magnificent halls of Tenryu-ji Temple, widely regarded as one of Kyoto's most beautiful Buddhist temples.

The history of the bamboo grove is intriguing. Arashiyama has long been favored by nobles and emperors, starting from ancient times in Japan's history, known as the Heian Period. Bamboo played a significant role in the meticulously designed gardens of these prestigious residences. During the Edo Period that followed, bamboo was cultivated in the area for various purposes, including its use in traditional Japanese crafts and as a delicious ingredient in local cuisine, such as bamboo shoots.

Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, where the seamless blend of nature and cultural heritage creates an unforgettable experience, inviting you to wander through a realm of tranquility and enchantment.
