  • 竹林圍繞的山中小徑,散發著一種空靈之美,但來往的遊客川流不息,加上不時來一台人力車,霎時壞了在林道間應有的寧靜氣氛,其實這片竹林搭配附近神社道院,倒也有一種出山入世的氛圍,可惜人太多了!!  more »
  • The bamboo groves are very cool and complete surround you, but it was just too busy and more of a procession than an enjoyable wander.  more »
  • The forest, in the middle of downtown Arashiyama, is one of those natural attractions typical of Japan to visit if you are around Kyoto. I visited the forest during the hot summer. the vegetation is so thick that when walking among the bamboos sunlight is swallowed completely and the temperature drops a few degrees. To visit.
