Lots and lots of tourists come to the bamboo forest and it's too crowded. Quite apart from that, there's nothing in the bamboo forest that is particularly interesting or couldn't be found elsewhere- and it's full of mosquitoes. I would only go here to post on Instagram. I would recommend skipping over the ridge and enjoying Kiyotaki river in a genuine forest, with very few tourists.

Very much a magical experience travelling through this pathway between the towering bamboo forest. Much more serene experience visiting in the early morning or early evening. Don`t go on weekends when families and locals come out in droves.

Another hidden gem in the outskirts of Kyoto. A definite must after the Hozugawa River Boat Ride. Although it's a short trail, you can enjoy the Bamboo Forest during the day or at night, just about sunset. Once it turns pitch-black there is an eerie, scary feeling. But not to worry, it is totally safe. I know there are guides that charge a large sum of money to take you there, but you can do this on your own for free. You might also want to try the Kimono Forest and hot foot spa just a few minutes away. Our visit was before the pandemic so masks and hand sanitizers were not required.

Overall, we enjoyed the bamboo grove and would recommend a visit. HOWEVER, be aware that all these photos are pretty much what you will see. The path in the forest is short. You get to the end and think there must be more, but there isn't. So just know this ahead of time, and really take it all in from the moment you step foot into it. Take a photo or two, but not too many, because by the time you finally look up to take it in, it'll all be over. And it's is a very majestic sight to see - maybe walk it a few times to take it all in. ;)
