Kyoto's Sagano Bamboo Forest

Take a soothing stroll down bamboo lane

By Carrie Jacobs    - 1 min read

The Sagano Bamboo Forest sits next to Tenryu-ji temple in the attractive area of Arashiyama, Kyoto. It is a worthwhile departure from temple visits, as the bamboo is quite impressive and beautiful year round.

The green grove is relaxing and the the bamboo sways and whistles with the wind.

Hailing from Portland Oregon, I am a recent transplant to Zama, Japan here in Kanagawa. Having worked for a high school international exchange organization for close to 8 years, I'm inspired by all things intercultural and love to travel! When in a new country I am like a sponge, absorbing as much cultural nuisance and norm as possible.Though I leave room for spontaneity during an outing or trip, I utterly enjoy doing advanced research; reading reviews of hotels, restaurants and sites to visit. I'm involved with Japan Tourist because I'd like to share my observations and recommendations with locals and travelers alike.
