Visitors to Kyoto have likely heard about Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. The famous bamboo grove is almost otherworldly as visitors pass into the forest with towering bamboo stalks on either side. With a slight breeze, the leaves rustle as the entire forest sways. It’s a magical experience. Access to the bamboo grove is easy from the main street in Arashiyama. There are also are wealth of small shops and things to see in Arashiyama. Truly, no visit to Kyoto would be complete without walking through the bamboo grove. It’s a must-see attraction.

A trip to Kyoto isn’t complete without an early wake-up call to visit the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest before the crowds.
In Mount Lushan, Kyoto, the wild bamboo forest is known as one of the "most beautiful trees on the earth". The hundreds of meters of small trails are covered with straight wild bamboos on both sides, just like a time tunnel.
Whether it's the sun shining through the forest on a sunny day, or the raindrops falling from the rain, it creates a mysterious bamboo forest.
Photographing here is a pleasing thing, because there are towering bamboo forests as background, no matter how you shoot, it will infiltrate a fresh and natural atmosphere.
Walk in the bamboo forest, as if the light boat is rippling in the sea hidden by the bamboo, a gust of wind blows, the bamboo shadow sways, that is the most pleasant sound of the sound of nature.
