Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, or as it’s more commonly known, Bamboo Forest, is one of the most beautiful sights in all of Japan, a verdant, haven of tranquility that embodies the deep bond which exists between the people of the country and the natural world.
Situated on the outskirts of Kyoto - Japan’s former capital, renowned for its wealth of stunning, historic sights - the forest dates back nearly a thousand years, and is shrouded in myth and legend, a symbol of strength and prosperity that is said to protect the nearby temples from the threat of evil spirits.
From the neon-lit futurism, gastronomy, and fashion of the Japanese capital the rich history, culture, and picturesque tranquility of Kyoto and the surrounding area, and the bubbling volcanic hot springs and breathtaking natural beauty of Hakone National Park, experience the very essence of this deeply beautiful and fascinating land on this excellent 9-night tour package.
Spring or Autumn are the best times of year to visit Kyoto as the weather is mild and the foliage is at its most beautiful.
