Arashiyama Bamboo Forest is one of the popular sights in Kyoto. Entrance is free and anyone can go through the grove of bamboos. It’s open 24/7 and they say that you can take great pictures in the early morning. I’ve always wanted to see it because of the amazing photos I’ve seen on the internet. We did not get a chance to visit it last time I was in Kyoto so I made sure to include it in this trip’s itinerary.
