Start your walking tour of Arashiyama and Sagano with a morning pickup from New Miyako Hotel. Following your pickup, proceed by coach to the tour starting point in Sagano, just northwest of central Kyoto, where you’ll meet your guide and start your walk.

Begin your walking exploration with a 2-mile (3-km) stroll through the lush bamboo grove in Sagano, admiring the fantastic views of nearby mountain peaks and the striking valleys of the Arashiyama area. Proceed next to Tenryu-Ji Temple, which dates to 1339 as one of the principal temples of the Rinzai Zen School. 

Head next to the Jojakko-Ji Temple, nestled in the wooded hills on a nearby mountainside. The temple is famous for its role in the Tale of the Heike, a work of Japanese literature that tells the story of Empress Dowager Kenrei-mon-in, who supposedly lived at the site. 

Finish your walking excursion by crossing the famous Togetsukyo Bridge (Crossing Moon Bridge), admiring the incredible views of the Hozu River below and forest-covered hills beyond. Your walking trip ends with a return to Kyoto station.
