An Arashiyama hike

Arashiyama’s back street walkways made a great hike if you could ignore peeking into temples and being distracted by restaurants and tourist shops.

But after leaving the heart of the tourist strip, the back streets were relatively quiet and often shaded. Narrow roads with an occasional car made easy walking amongst the lush vegetation — definitely a treat after the hoards madly clicking throughout the Bamboo Forest.
