First Light at Sagano Bamboo Grove, Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan

Japan stock photography | First Light at Sagano Bamboo Grove, Arashiyama, Kyoto, Kansai, Honshu, Japan

Arashiyama is a wonderful place and is located just west of Kyoto and next to Sagano. Arashiyama is perhaps most famous for it’s bamboo groves. Sagano bamboo groves are found behind Tenryuji Temple and along the trail to the Okochi Sanso. It is something you should consider seeing if you want to get out of the main city – which is always infested with tourists.

BTW, just found today that I won the third place at Darwin Wiggett‘s Travel Photo Contest. Judge was brilliant travel photographer David duChemin. If you haven’t read his books I strongly suggest doing that. Start with “Within The Frame, A Journey In Photographic Vision” and continue with his eBooks “Ten Ways to Improve Your Craft. None of Them Involve Buying Gear” and other ones from Craft and Vision series.
