    • 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.

    The bamboo grove was packed when I went there – and for nothing at all spectacular. Maybe it would’ve been different in the morning…
