One of my best experiences ever: standing in the middle of a giant bamboo forest with the early morning sun peeking through the groves in Kyoto. It’ s such a magical feeling when you hear the wind blowing against the trees and feel the soft sun on your face. It’s heaven on earth! Oh, and one tip: get there as early as possible. It gets really crowded with people and believe me, it’s looses a lot of it’s magic. I remember it was boiling hot that day so I went for a long, flowy summer dress and flat sandals. Easy always does it!
