Take a walk through towering dark green bamboo in Kyoto's prettiest corner.
InsideJapan's favourite corner of Kyoto is the suburb of Arashiyama on the banks of the Hozu River. Literally meaning ?storm mountain', Arashiyama has many pretty temples, preserved Meiji Period streets, cafes and shops to explore as well as stunning views down the Hozu gorge. But the most well-known sight is the bamboo groves; an atmospheric 200 metre path through swathes of stories high bamboo. Best viewed as a breeze ripples through the dark green bamboo, it's particularly stunning in December when the groves are illuminated by traditional lanterns.
