Worth a visit, the bamboo forest is so nice, downside is there are plenty of other people admiring the same thing. Not really relaxing experience. So would recommend visiting early in the morning, or night to get a little bit more magic out of this...More
A visit to the Bamboo grove / forest in Sagano is worth all the effort. We went in summer and were impressed. I can imagine how much more beautiful it would be in season
Too many tourists, but like always in Japan, manicured nature... There was an extremely nice and humble Cafe where we had lunch.
