Today you will cross the mountains and head to Kyoto, formerly the imperial capital of Japan. If you are traveling in Japan during the warmer months you may consider taking a traditional boat ride from Kameoka to the Arashiyama area of Kyoto. These boat are expertly guided down the river much as they were during the Edo Period. While in Arashiyama you will take a stroll with your private guide through Kyoto’s famous bamboo forest before exploring other areas of this amazing city. For accommodations you can chose from a ryokan inn, machiya townhouse or hotel. The trip from Kameoka to Arashiyama by train take only 15 minutes.
