Experience a private Tour of Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

Experience a whole new Japan beyond the neon city lights with a private tour of the Arashiyama district in western Kyoto. Get to know the region’s idyllic side with a journey into the beautiful countryside where you’ll see once-in-a-lifetime sights and experience VIP luxury along the way.

Tours typically last around four hours and begin with a chartered transfer by either limo, bus or car to the historic Tenryu Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the most important temple in Kyoto. Founded in 1339 at the beginning of the Muromachi Period, this temple also offers idyllic zen gardens for visitors to find peace in.

Your journey will continue with a visit to the picture-perfect Togetsukyo Bridge. Otherwise known as the "Moon Crossing Bridge", this iconic landmark is perfect for photo opportunists with its backdrop of colourful forests and sweeping vistas.

The highlight of your tour will be the Sagano Bamboo Groves, one of the region’s most popular natural attractions. With pathways winding serenely through the veritable forest of swaying bamboo stalks, this walk is not only scenic but also incredibly peaceful with supposed powers of tranquillity over those who visit.

While these tour features are enough to fill up your day, you can also tailor experiences to your interests and can include a variety of other local attractions if you want to pack a little more in. All guided journeys include a chartered vehicle which will transfer you to and from your place of residence as well as between attractions.
