Beautiful bamboo grove. Very tranquil. Be sure to get there early, say 6am-7am to avoid the stampede of tourists. We arrived at 730 and was still a bit busy and many people doing selfies etc. despite the amount of people it is a very beautiful l place and I would recommend that you definitely come here while in Kyoto.
It was a great place but sadly the day I went there, it was raining :( I couldn’t capture a nice photo due to the weather. As local guide suggested to visit this place during May, so that you can enjoy the most beautiful view there. You can see many houses along the way to the bamboo forest and it is very old design, which is very good to enjoy.
There are many interesting places to viait actually in this area. Bamboo forest is one of. Went there during spring time which I believe the peak season there. So many people flowing there, but there were always beautiful view for us to capture. This place was just amazing!
(Translated by Google). It is a kind of poetry on path to inferno spirit. Self-picture madder was the way of humankind. Soft green ice cream brought redemption at end of path to hell. Never again wall of people tourists venture here. Never again stampeded against bamboo fence by humanity.
This place is way too popular for tourists but the road is narrow, you can imagine the amount of tourists you will see here. The amount of people kinda ruins the scenery. It's too crowded to take any good photo and enjoy the walk. If you do plan to take some good photos and enjoy some fresh air, maybe go there at 6-7am to avoid the crowd. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.
