Arashiyama Excursion

Jump to last reply

Planning on doing a day trip to Arashiyama from Kyoto in November with the following itinerary:

1. Arrive in Arashiyama by train (JR to Saga Arashiyama station)
2. Walk to the Bamboo forest/grove
3. Take Scenic Railway to Kameoka (from Torroko Arashiyama station)
4. Take the Hozugawa River Tour back to Arashiyama
5. Visit the Monkey Park
6. Back to Kyoto

This is really all for the scenery (fall colors). No temples or anything.

My questions are:

1. Is walking from JR Sagano to the Bamboo grove just a flat walk?
2. Same question for walking from Bamboo grove to Torroko Arashiyama station - flat walk?
3. Is it worth doing the Scenic Railway and/or Hozugawa River Tour?

Thank you.
