Explore Beyond the Grove

Unless you're up at sunrise, be prepared for crowds in Arashiyama, especially at the Bamboo Forest--but know that there are still bastions of tranquility in the area around the grove. Find them at the observation points with sweeping river vistas (marked by frequent maps), and in the gardens of Tenryu-Ji, a Zen temple near the bamboo grove grounds and totally worth the extra entry fee for the slice of peace it provides.
