This place is quite pretty but difficult to get a good photo as very touristy. Not really in a forest, more of a plantation at edge of city. The town near by is good for a wander.

Very unusual, must see place.
We were lucky to appreciate the bamboo forest with leaves.
Apparently the fall is best time to visit.

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.
