Sagano-Arashiyama Walking Tour

Sagano and Arashiyama are located in the western part of Kyoto. In the 8th century, aristocrats often came to this area of rice fields and bamboo woods to enjoy the scenery. The landscape today is still reminiscent of that period. Visit temples and marvel at tranquil Zen-style gardens. See the Sagano Bamboo Grove and visit Jojakkoji Temple, the final home of Empress Dowager Kenrei-mon-in.
