Yes it's pretty, yes it's small, and yes all the tourists really take away from enjoying it. Get there as early as possible to have the least amount of other people there with you. It only take about 5-10 minutes (depending on how fast you walk and how many people you are shuffling along with) to get through. There are lots of rickshaw guys out front you could hire to pull you through, they also get to go down a special rickshaw path only where you can get pics without other people in them. Seriously, get there early and on a weekday.

Nice walk if your in arashima. Lots of food stalls at the start of the walk. Makes good photo. Very popular spot. Would recommend going to the monkey park if your coming here as it is just a quick walk away and so so cool.

The bamboo forest is not very long stretch of woods and it was extremely crowded. I would recommend seeing it, but very early in the morning. It was very crowded by 9:30.

Very busy lots of tourists.Much smaller area than anticipated. Not as peaceful as the tourist brochures display it.
Lots of shops and restaurants nearby.
Within walking distance of JR station.
