Autumn Story In Japan 2013 – Arashiyama – 嵐山のBamboo Groves

The famous bamboo forest at Arashiyama. It is beautiful but will be even more so if it’s not a gloomy weather that day. Also, it is not a that peaceful walk because there are loads of  Taiwanese and China Tour Groups and I couldn’t even take a photo without anyone in the background.

Also, noisy. Ya..very noisy. Haha.

The walking paths that cut through the bamboo groves make for a nice walk or bicycle ride. The groves are particularly attractive when there is a light wind and the tall bamboo stalks sway gently back and forth.

Looks so serene if minus the crowd. 😛

After the walk through the bamboo forest, we got a little lost at how can we go to Togetsukyo Bridge and Tenryuji Temple. So we approached a guard (not sure if he’s a guard but he’s wearing a uniform, lol) and pointed to Togetsukyo Bridge on the brochure, and we manage to go on the right way. 😀
