Great and beautiful station by the way combine with lighted up kimono pillars. Great view at night.
This kimono pillar was located inside of a train station. Private line.
Around the station a lots of good eats and small shops.
The Kimono Forest is located in Randen Tram Station (on the Keifuku Arashiyama line). If you are on a group tour, this attraction is through the shops opposite the entrance to Tenryu-ji temple. It’s a beautiful art installation of kimono pillars, that ends with a...More
Very unique and stylish place! We especially liked the dragon fountain surrounded by pillars with pieces of kimono textiles inside! A stroll among these “bamboo”-pillars feels wonderful during sunset when light and colors are particularly warm and vibrant! The fact that the kimono forest makes...More
Arashiyama Kimono Forest was located inside the local train station at Arashiyama. Two columns of colorful lights were backdrops for photo-takers. In fact these colorful tubes were kimono patterns lined up as wallpaper display for viewing by public.
This is a pretty area next to the train station which is a good place to get some photos. It was like a small scale version of Sydney's Vivid festival. There were colourful pillars that were supposed to represent bamboo and had various kimono patterns...More
Kimono forest? It looked more like a collection of tubes lined with wallpaper.
You will see it if you arrive into the station where it is, but I wouldn't bother walking the 30 metres or so from the main street to see it
When people are planning stuff to do in Kyoto, I doubt the Kimono Forest in Arashiyama springs to mind. But the happy thing about it is that it is conveniently close (walkable) to some places that people do think of going to - one of...More
We were in the area and decided to pass by the place. It is small, very colorful and a nice stop. Saw some people actually walking around in their kimonos and saying a prayer in one of the stations. Quite serene.
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
