Explore Arashiyama
like if it is your only chance

Arashiyama is one of the most famous areas in Japan, but it is quite big so we tried our very best to regroup everything we consider important and relevant in the exploration of that wonderful and beautiful place, so you get the best out of the tour, even on foot.

Explore the bamboo grove and reach the top of Arashiyama park for an amazing observation spot of the area. Take your time to enjoy the private Okochi Sanso garden, sit and take a deep breath, with an authentic Japanese sweet and a cup of green tea. Explore one of the most famous Zen Buddhist temples in the country, indoors and outdoors, and admire the Koi fish in the pond. Enjoy nature around you and learn more about the place. Besides the bamboo grove, this is probably the second most popular spot for a picture with the Katsura river, and the majestic view of the iconic "Togetsukyo" bridge. Hike up the hill and explore the monkey park. That place is especially thrilling for families and kids. Stop at every single shop you want to discover that old-fashion shopping street in Arashiyama, and ask your guide to assist you with anything in that last part of the tour with free-time shopping.
