Japan: meet expectations in the Sagano Bamboo Grove in Arashiyama

I really wanted to visit the Sagano Bamboo Forest in Arashiyama, Japan. I could already see myself wandering alone between the bamboos… but could I really expect this from the most famous destination in Kyoto?

Imagination vs. Reality… it was full of tourists. I should have arrived there early in the morning.

I stood in one spot, waited for people to pass by, for those few seconds where there was actually about no one on the path… and I shot. For those little moments, I felt exactly what I was looking for.

  1. Les photos ont un côté très poétique. Elles traduisent vraiment bien le calme et le zen
