its best to combine this attraction with other places in the vicinity if you plan to visit to get the most of your trip otherwise i would rather spend it in some other attraction in kyoto. its a bit of a slope so make sure to wear comfy shoes. there are also several great restaurants and coffee places around the area.
I was very disappointed in the grove. First of all, there were just way to many people for it to be pleasant. Second of all, it's a much smaller place than pictures will lead you to believe. The bamboo seemed kind of sparse as well.
We caught the train out to Arashiyama and then walked through the town to find the bamboo grove. Could not see any signposts in English pointing the way and we finally ended up walking the long way around to get there. It would help to ask directions from tourist information or hotel before travelling out there for precise directions.
A nice view for photos but would not recommend to go out of your way to see. Great if your already within the area. I did the scenic railway, the river boat cruise, monkey park and bamboo grove all in the same day so was a nice end to the afternoon before grabbing a late lunch. I also experienced the bamboo grove via rickshaw after I walked through which was much nicer as they have private areas to go through which is not crowded.
This was amazing! I wish we had gone first thing in the morning to fight the crowds. But I think we were still able to enjoy our visit. Everyone was respectful of others so that we could all get pictures.
