Destination Asia Japan is proud to share a new leisure focused product which involves visiting a beautiful bamboo forest in Kyoto before meeting a master craftsman, specializing in bamboo ware. Many visitors to Kyoto wish to see one of its iconic towering bamboo forests but in recent years Arashiyama, the most popular choice, has become a little crowded. We help your clients to escape from the crowd by taking them further afield to Rakusai Bamboo Park, a far quieter alternative known only to locals and the more determined adventurer.
After exploring the bamboo forest, clients have the chance to visit a bamboo master in his workshop and learn about bamboo craft for themselves. There is also the option of a bamboo-themed lunch if clients really want to get to grips with the versatility of the plant!
