So we went to Arashimaya to see the bamboo forest.
From Kyoto Station take JR train to Saga-Arashimaya Station and walk for about 10-15 minutes.
Honestly it was nothing much aside from well tall nicely arranged (planted) bamboos!
Maybe I grew up in a town with a lot of bamboos so I didn’t actually see it as something very special.
Nevertheless we had a great time taking photos and Summer being monkey or squirrel climbing the bamboos.
As we stroll around it was amazing. There’s a lot of cafes and restaurants around and also some temples and a river.
There’s a lot of tourist here taking photos so you need to wait for perfect timing to take a nice selfie.
If you have a baby with you or a young toddler, make sure you bring a stroller as there’s a lot of walking to be done!
