Bamboo Forest, Katsura river

Located alongside the flowing Katsura River, you will find a small promenade filled with interesting scenery, from the Tokko Onsen, tea-processing buildings and fire lookouts. The cool breeze throughout the bamboo forest is replenishing to the soul and at the centre, a large, circular bench made from bamboo lies to rest your legs. Depending on the time of year, the area is often decorated with lights, making night-walks through the forest particularly magical. The 400m promenade continues along the river from the red Katsura bridge down to Takishita Bridge. Follow the cobblestone path surrounding the forest to hear the relaxing babble of the clear stream, and sample some of the local delights; galleries, teahouses and bamboo benches.
