No doubt the best day of our holiday in Japan, (at least for me) was the day we went to Kyoto.

Up at 5:30am, out of the hotel by 6am, on the 6:30am Bullet Train, speeds hitting 177 miles per hour, which meant we were able to reach our destination in 2hrs and 15min. Bamboo Grove, here we come.

Kyoto has many bamboo forests, but by far the most famous bamboo grove in Kyoto is in Sagano, near the famous Arashiyama region. The grove has a road that runs through it from Nonomiya Shrine to Okochi Cottage. Walking this path, one must stop, look up and take in the sun rays that come down through the foliage. If you close your eyes and allow your senses to be heightened, you can take in a light scent of bamboo.

Not paying attention to the time, we spent almost 3hrs in the grove. That being said, we almost lost daylight, but not before I was able to get in a photo shoot.
