  • I stopped by the bamboo grove while strolling around Arashiyama. The small precincts were flooded with a lot of tourists. There seems to be a profit of the edge cutting, too.

  • What a peaceful and beautiful place. I would love to spend more time here. The temples, shrines and gardens are wonderful all around here. The staff was so friendly and helpful! Thank you! I would recommend a stop here and a walk through the bamboo forest. Amazing.
  • I was here for New Year's, and there was hot sake here. It was great and surreal to warm up in the forest in Japan. Really breathtaking shrine. Every Japanese Shinto shrine has so much character that I could spend an entire trip visiting all of them.
