竹林 嵐山 Chikurin arashiyama Bamboo Forest in Sagano-Arashiyama

Jp En


Sagano is one of Japan’s three famous bamboo forests. At present 6 hectares of bamboo forests are preserved under the Ancient Capitals Preservation Law, and the sound of the wind in this bamboo forest was chosen as one of “100 must-be-preserved sounds of Japan” by Japan’s Environment Agency. The typical walking trail in Sagano starts at Ninomiya Shrine, then leads to Okochi Sanso (villa). In December, Kyoto Hana Touro or the Lighting and Flower Arrangement Lane is held by the local municipality. Every evening during the event, streets in the Saga-Arashiyama area are illuminated by lanterns. Bamboo trees shining in orange light emerge against the darkness of the night and create a magical world.
