- Visited: Tuesday 1:30 PM
- If you don’t like crowd, go early.
- The train ride from Kyoto was very crowded.
After visiting Hirokawa, I walked over to the famous bamboo grove. It was really crowded.
You can rent a bike or ride a rickshaw, but given how crowded it was I don’t think they are such great alternatives to walking.
I think it would have been a nice stroll if I came early morning. It was just too crowded to enjoy the scenery. Nevertheless, it was very beautiful.
It was worth the trip in a overpacked train, but if I were to visit again I would visit early morning instead. The bamboo grove was larger than I thought but it wasn’t large enough to get lost in. I only walked around for 10-20 minutes.
