Last week I finally managed to travel to Kyoto! Kyoto is a very beautiful city with nice structure and very tasty matcha ice cream. Top of my list for a visit to the city was the Bamboo Grove in Arashiyama. Arashiyama is in the west of Kyoto and is at the base of the Arashiyama Mountains.
Before I went there, I had already seen some nice pictures of the Grove. However, that did not compare with the real feeling of actually standing in the middle of the grove and listening to the wind and the movement of the bamboos. There is a main path which leads to the top of the hill and finally get you to the Okochi Sanso Villa which is very beautiful.
Arashiyama and its peaceful surroundings are the best gateway from the everyday city life that can sometimes become tiring and even boring.
