Bamboo Grove in Arashiyama

The Japanese honor the bamboo and you can see that in their myths and legends and they link the bamboo to a man’s strength. Many things are made of bamboo in Japan example cups, spoons, plates, mats, fences and many more. I visited the famous Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, bamboo forests in their natural state. A trip to the bamboo forests is not complete without a visit to the Tenryu-ji Temple, Nonomiya Shrine and the sublime Okocho-Sanso Villa. I liked the walk through the bamboo forest. For those who cannot walk the long distance, rickshaw rides are provided for a fee by some Japanese men.
