The famous Sagano bamboo forest is located in outskirt of Kyoto, in a district called Arashiyama (30 mins from central Kyoto). The district itself is a popular tourist destination since the Heian Period (8th century). In the bamboo forest is interestingly a natural site. Walking along the path within the Sagano bamboo grove, you’ll hear a soothing sound that wind makes when blowing amongst the bamboo.
