Arashiyama bamboo grove is one of the most impressive natural wonders...especially at sunrise before the crowds arrive!
Silence is only interrupted by the sound of wind rustling through the bamboo and your own voice saying wow so many times you'll need a thesaurus to think of something else to say.
Just a little note that my Japan Autumn Photography Tour is nearly full! There's only 3 spots left for November! I'll include a link in my stories to register for more info...

MY FAVOURITE DAY IN JAPAN 🇯🇵 I went to Udon School to learn to make Udon! It was the most fun I have had in Japan yet! I graduated top of the class today with my Udon elected as the best!
Maybe I'm turning Japanese 😉
After learning the arts of making udon noodles, it was time to visit Konpira Shrine 🏯
This shrine is the most incredible I have ever scene. The uphill trip is over 700m and the scenery leading up to the peak is phenomenal. It weaves through hills and greenery with stone lanterns and engraved boulders are scattered throughout the hike.
I left the shrine feeling refreshed and invigorated.
When you visit Japan please put this on your list of things to see, it is truly enchanting. *please make sure to scroll through pictures, they are the best of the trip*
