The Bamboo Forest
The Bamboo Forest is in the Arashiyama district of Kyoto, Japan. It is within walking distance of the Tenryu-ji Temple, at the foot of the mountains. Walking through this grove is like nothing I have ever seen or felt before, it is certainly another place and time. I am not sure how far the pathway goes, we walked a little way, but because we were on a schedule for the day, the walk was kept short. Note the use of bamboo as fencing.
