8. Sagano Bamboo forest, Japan
When you hear of a bamboo forest, the first thing that should come to mind are the movies where the actors fly across bamboo branches with ease and grace whilst in a fight. Or you probably care less about such movies. That’s beside the point, though.
But believe it or not, the growth of bamboo trees in this grove is nothing short of impressive. Once you lay your eyes on what the forest has to offer, you will want nothing else but to experience it for yourself. The bamboo forest covers a total of 16 kilometers. Its beauty is complimented by the natural sound the wind makes as it blows through the thick bamboo grove.
