InformationInformation

Chikurin-no-Michi (Path of bamboo) is a 100 meters long path with bamboo trees which leads from Nonomiya-jingu Shrine to Okochi-Sanso mountain villa in Arashiyama. You can feel the scent of bamboo and feeble sunlight throughout the path. This fantastic scenery appears many times on Japanese TV dramas and commercial films. The path is beautifully lit up at night during the annual event "Kyoto Arashiyama Hanatouro" held in mid-December.
