We took a trip to Arashiyama today.
We had this on our list because we had seen photos of the bamboo groves and decided it looked like a peaceful walk. However once we had finally navigated our wsy to the groves they weren't as dense of peaceful as we had been lead to believe!
There were plenty of people visiting and although the bamboo was very pretty, we kept havong to dodge out of the way of cars that were taking the same path.
We did a little shopping and we both purchased some pretty art pieces to take home.
In the end we headed back early and decided to spend our evening in Kyoto.
