“Best spot in Kyoto!”
This is hands down the best spot in Kyoto
There is a beautiful bamboo forest which will send your mind back into what you thought Japan would be, and fulfills those dreams.
Nearby is a small street of shops selling traditional Japanese nick-nacks and trinkets along with traditional foods.
At the end of the street is a wonderful river with a old bridge over it, it's a very nice view, especially in summer, with the green mountains in the background.
There is also a monkey park over the other side of the river and slightly up the river, which has the best view of Kyoto. And monkeys, don't forget monkeys.
Go to Arashimyama, you will not be disappointed!
