Worth a visit, the bamboo forest is so nice, downside is there are plenty of other people admiring the same thing. Not really relaxing experience. So would recommend visiting early in the morning, or night to get a little bit more magic out of this...More

A visit to the Bamboo grove / forest in Sagano is worth all the effort. We went in summer and were impressed. I can imagine how much more beautiful it would be in season

Too many tourists, but like always in Japan, manicured nature... There was an extremely nice and humble Cafe where we had lunch.

This place is easy to find as it's well signed in Japanese and English. The bamboo is truly amazing, I never knew it grew so big and in such vast quantities. Save some time for a delicious ice cream back in town.

With the tourist vying for spots to take selfies and photos. The ambiance was wonderful and just love the tall bamboos towering over the area... If you are lucky, there won't be as many tourists around and you can truly enjoy the place!

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
