Bamboo Forest

Nestled at the base of Kyoto’s Arashiyama Mountains, there’s a bamboo forest that happens to be one of the best things to do in Japan. It takes about 30 minutes to reach from central Kyoto, but you’ll feel like you’re hours away from the action. While it certainly draws significant crowds, there are plenty of quiet, leafy corners to enjoy on your own.
