People have loved the scenery of Arashiyama since more than 1000 years ago. It must be much busier nowadays but still you can find what’s been so attractive.
When we set out from Kyoto to Arashiyama, I thought we would spend some time in the bamboo forest and then hop on the train back. It's such a cute town, with so much to do, that we ended up spending the whole day there. The Bamboo Forest, a walk along the river, a hike up to see the Monkeys and a delicious train station lunch made for a perfect day. Japan is an amazing place to visit.
