About A Walk Through A Bamboo Grove
Kamakura, a seaside Japanese city famous for its many Buddhist Zen temples and Shinto shrines, is also home to immense groves of moso bamboo. Attaining heights of over 90 feet, this giant timber bamboo sheds its older leaves as new ones unfurl, blanketing the ground within the dark, cool groves.
One experiences a sense of awe, vicariously wandering in the grove on the paths provided, with unexpected vistas, ancient stone lanterns, and the repetitive rhythm the bamboo segments. Looking up, one sees what appears to be a gothic cathedral, with the sky as the roof.
