Arashiyama Bamboo Grove
Arashiyama Bamboo Grove is one of many wonderful places we visited in Kyoto. I’ve seen this place in so many guide books, and often on many blogs that feature Japan. What made more of an impression of this forest was the sounds that were made by the bamboo trees clashing together every time there was a bit of a breeze. We visited in the early afternoon and the light was quite harsh so in the end I never managed to get the shots I really wanted of this site, but nevertheless a totally magical place to visit (even with the large crowds of people). There were so many pictures to choose from for this post – so I have tried to select the best, but this is still quite a lengthy post.
As with most places in Japan we took the train to get here – there are details listed on Wiki Travel here.
