The bamboo grove is near the station of Sagano scenic railway. So you can visit here either after taking the train and then go to the temples nearby or after visiting to the temples nearby and then take the train. Many people choose these kinds of route. The bamboo grove is usually crowded. If you don’t want to endure the crowds, you can come earlier. Personally, I don’t think this spot is a must-go because it is too crowded to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that it should have.
