Arashiyama – Tenryu-ji and the Sagano Bamboo Forest

DSC_0435IMG_0836After walking through the grounds at Tenryu-ji, I passed through a portion of the Sagano Bamboo Forest, which can be accessed from the northwest exit gate of the temple.  While not as dense and tropical as the one in Haleakala National Park in Maui, these rows of sturdy growth were equally as beautiful, shimmering a light blue-gray in the mid-afternoon light.
