[Kyoto] bamboo wonderland

(Bamboo groves at Arashiyama – Canon 1100D)

We took an early train out of Kyoto to reach Arashiyama before lunch. The cold wind that greeted us when we emerged from the railway station took us to the nearest vending machine where we got ourselves warm coffee.

Luckily for us, the rain was slight and lasted only for a short while. When the sun finally reigned over the sky, the rays that peered through the bamboo made this place a sight be behold. In between admiration and appreciation for the landscape that laid before me, I couldn’t help but wonder what this place would transform into at sunset.

  1. Great shots. Arashiyama is one of my favourite places to visit ^^ There is a great walk from the bamboo grove up a road with lots of old houses and shops until you reach a shrine with hundreds of stone carved statues.
