  • Pedestrians in line the streets leading to the bamboo... we trample. .. There is nothing... yet this place would release a pain relief... get there early.

  • Ballad to do if you're in the area, but no transcendent visit. Walk in the Bamboo Grove, opportunities to do by sleigh. Small shops and pastries surroundings are friendly for the purchase of souvenirs.

  • It is advisable to be there very early. Could photos take without large crowd, without having people in the picture. In the late morning I imagine overflowing this place and the great relaxed atmosphere would be lost. Visiting can be combined well with other attractions, because the small 'forest' is quickly visited!
