Arashiyama - Bamboo Forest

Arashiyama is a pleasant and touristy district on the western outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. The location is well known for its temples and bamboo forest. Bamboo groves are found behind Tenryuji Temple and along the trail to the Okochi Sanso. The bamboo is still used to manufacture various products, such as baskets, cups, boxes, mats and pieces of art at workshops in the Arashiyama area.
