竹の里・乙訓

A bamboo forest on Nishi-no-oka Hill in northwestern Muko City, a well-known production area for high-quality bamboo shoots. Called “Take-no-michi,” development of the area began in 2000 to preserve its scenery and promote tourism.

The 1.8 kilometers bamboo forest path is lined with eight kinds of bamboo hedge, including original creations such as “Takehogaki,” a hedge made of bamboo branches tied in bundles, “Kofungaki,” a hedge that looks like a rounded ancient burial mound, and “Kaguyagaki,” a hedge patterned after the neck of a 12-layered ceremonial kimono worn by Princess Kaguya, the protagonist of the folk story “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.”
