Imagine gazing down an endless pathway of swaying green boughs. The stalks tower above you, allowing sunlight to filter in gently. The forest seems endless to both your left and your right, and the sound of foliage swaying in the breeze lulls you into a trance-like state.
Perhaps you’re in solitude at this moment, or perhaps friendly folk wearing yukata robes and geta sandals can be glimpsed in the distance. This peaceful scene isn’t a mere dream – it is the reality you’ll find within Arashiyama’s famed bamboo forest.
