Feature - Kyoto's Sagano Bamboo Forest
Moises Saman
Situated in Kyoto’s western Arashiyama district, the Sagano Bamboo Forest is a tranquil sanctuary for those looking to escape from the bustling activity of the city. Visitors often approach the grove by way of the Tenryu-ji Temple and upon entering are encompassed in a green canopy formed by the tall, straight bamboo trees which block out the city. The Japanese Ministry of the Environment identifies the forest as one of the country’s 100 soundscapes - the rustling leaves, and creaking and swaying trees provide visitors with a unique and peaceful aural experience.
