Bamboo forest of Sagano 嵯峨野竹林, Kyoto Japan



Bamboo forest of Sagano 嵯峨野竹林 is one of the place that i like the most when visited Kyoto..remind me of the fight scene of the movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (卧虎藏龙)..The atmosphere there is so calm and peaceful..

We bought this nice ice-cream with 4 combination of difference flavours from this shop before enter to this forest..

At first, i was wondered why the scene is not as nice as i seen in Alan (travellingfoodies)'s post. Later i realized that i have to walk quite deep inside to see the nice scene..

I love Kyoto. The food, people, culture & historical building there are "authentic" as like you go back to ancient time of Nippon! I love that ice cream too! If not wrong it"s made of toufu !

Definitely one of the places I'll not miss when I visit Kyoto. One of the things I so often heard is the sound the bamboo forest makes when the wind is blowing.
