A 5-hour guided tour of Sagano bamboo grove, Tenryu-ji and Jojakko-ji temple, and Togetsu-kyo bridge is the perfect way to soak in the culture and scenic beauty of nature that adorns this area.

Heritage Gems and a Dreamy Forest

Walk to Tenryu-ji, a Zen Buddhism temple, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the temple's Japanese garden with pine trees and a promenade surrounding the central Sōgen Pond. Head to the Sagano bamboo grove and walk through a surreal jade-green forest lined with bamboo stalks.

Continue onto the Jojakko-ji temple, a 16th-century Nichiren sect temple located on the slopes of Mt. Ogura, with a 12-meter tall pagoda. Climb a steep stairway to reach the main hall with a Bodhisattva image. Revel in the tranquility of the greenery surrounding Jojakko-ji, which turns into a riot of colors during the fall season.

Seasonal Foliage from Togetsu-kyo Bridge

Stroll through the Togetsu-kyo bridge, a 250-meter-long bridge over the Katsura River that faces the Arashiyama mountain. Known for its scenic seasonal beauty, the trees dotting the mountain slopes turn pink in spring with cherry blossoms and a fiery red in autumn.
