The forest and surrounding town/shops are movie worthy. Tranquil and lovely with amazing hidden food spots, a museum, and lots of tourist shops and foot baths (asiu). Excellent place to explore!

The whole town around the bamboo grove with a stream running through it is very pretty with many photo-ops. Well worth a visit.

There are some tourist towns and attractions that are done badly, and you can see the fact that they have been set up in a rush in a pure bid for the tourist dollar. Otaru is one such town in Japan that comes to mind....More

A stone paved pathway through tall bamboo along the river is a nice retreat from a busy city. Here in Shuzenji Onsen there is not a busy city, but there is a bamboo path. Think Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in miniature. The tour buses arrive around...More

The forrest is small and just good for a short walk. But as it is so central in town, it's definitley worth the visit.

We loved stopping in this little town. We would go back again to spend more time. The trail is great and reminded us both of the movie spirited away. Lots of historical things in town.

It was a very pleasant walk. The only complaint is that there were sooooooo many people! I am not a fan of crowds, but still it was a pleasant walk after lunch.

Chikurinnokomichi (竹林の小径) is just short distance road. But when visitors go there, people can feel comfortable. Atmosphere is Silence, pure, calm... Good place.

The walk along the river and through bamboo trees is beautiful and very low key. I think it's even pretty on a rainy day.
