Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan
This stunning bamboo forest is located in the Arashiyama district on the west outskirts of Kyoto, Japan. It is one of the most amazing natural sites in the country. An interesting fact about Sagano Bamboo Forest is the sound that the wind makes while it blows through the bamboo. Amazingly enough, this sound has been voted on as one of the “one hundred must-be-preserved sounds of Japan” by the Japanese government. Another interesting fact – the railing on the sides of the road is composed out of old, dry and fallen parts of bamboo.
Full set of Madoka prints complete! I’m actually really glad I went through and finished drawing all of them even though I didn’t plan to originally..! These were drawn over a period of two years so the style’s really all over the place haha. 2011: Homura, Sayaka / 2012: Kyoko, Mami / 2013: Madoka
