Bamboo groves behind Tenryuji

One of the reasons we came to this particular spot is because of photos Michelle has seen in the National Geographic and on Lonely Planet Images of the bamboo forest here. If you're there for a while, like we were, you can see the colour and shade change quite a bit as the light filters through the canopy above. We were lucky to have a sunny day as it would be quite crappy without the right light. A constant stream of visitors come and go. Some arrive in a taxi, get out, take photos and leave in about the same time it took me to write this sentence. Others, like the kids in kimonos come up for photos and go.
