Chikurin-no-Komichi (Banboo Forest Path)

Travel Guide - Chikurin-no-Komichi (Banboo Forest Path)


Chikurin-no-Komichi is a scenic pedestrian walkway that meanders along the Katsura-gawa River.
Surrounded by tall bamboo trees on both sides, the 400-meter long romantic path stretches from the vermilion-colored Katsura-bashi Bridge to Kaede-bashi Bridge.
The contrast of colors created by the bamboo grove rising into the sky and the red bridge parapets evokes the beauty of Japanese scenery like that of Kyoto.

The walkway is a pleasant path with a tea shop near the Katsura-bashi Bridge and a large bamboo bench at the center of the bamboo forest where visitors can rest and enjoy the scenery.
Beyond the bamboo forest is a photo gallery showing works capturing the beauty of the seasons in Shuzenji area.
