Sagano Bamboo Forest is located in Arashiyama, a district on the west outskirts of Kyoto, Japan.
Sagano Bamboo Forest is one of the most amazing natural sites in Japan.
One of the most interesting facts about Sagano Bamboo Forest is the sound which the wind makes while it blows amongst the bamboo. Amazingly enough, this sound has been voted on as one of the ”one hundred must-be-preserved sounds of Japan” by the Japanese government.
As mentioned he Sagano Bamboo Forest is not too far from Kyoto’s main streets – (30 minutes by train).
Another interesting fact – the railing on the sides of the road is composed out of old, dry and fallen parts of bamboo.
