Kyoto is really well-known for its worship and sightseeing area in East side... with tons of solemn temples and shrines etc... But I strongly recommend that you can't leave Japan without experiencing another phase of Kyoto
Arashiyama is seasonally enjoyable place to visit!
with its picturesque mountains, rivers and special cozy atmosphere
along with serene temple, Tenryuji (Unesco World Heritage)
But Most of All!!
Exotic air of Bamboo Grove strolling!
Can you believe? It's not that far from the busy city life of central Kyoto
just around 30minutes from Kyoto station!
Bamboo is very special and unique tree. Looking so amazing!
You should put this lose-your-sense-of-time experience to your "Must to Visit" list in Kyoto Itinerary!
I promiss you never be disappointed just to extend your exploration by another half day into the suburban of Kyoto!
