Walking through the bamboo forest is pretty awesome. The tall bamboo on both sides of the walkway are beautiful to look at and take great pictures.

The bamboo itself was breathtaking and the sights will give great photo opportunities. However, try to go early or later in the day because it gets VERY crowded and the people will definitely ruin the experience.

The bamboo forest, on the edge of the city, is a delight. Even with lots of tourists, the cathedral-like atmosphere of the soaring bamboo trunks is maintained. Be careful of the slightly agressive rickshaw pullers. Allow an hour.

Not a great sight. Too many people on the walk through the bamboo. The walk itself is rather short and not what you would call surreal and tranquil with trains very close by. We found a little coffee shop/dolls museum. Good coffee and quiet. Met the owner who made the dolls. Lovely older person. Go have a look at the dolls and have a coffee and cake. The town was packed with tourists. It was not enjoyable. Prices were expensive.

Loved the forest...not so much all the people. The gardens within the forest were especially lovely. You have to pay about 500 yen but it is well worth it. You have tea and biscuit and then wander through the lovely garden. Vistas were great.
