Bamboo fence: Katsura Imperial Villa

Katsura Imperial Villa, Kyoto sightseeing

Bamboo fence surrounds Katsura Imperial Villa, one of the most elegant architecture in Japan, and beyond the fence is the Villa.

Thick bamboos make up the main frames and between the frames are a pile of the thin ones arranged neatly. The zoomed-in photo shows that two layers of thin bamboos are skillfully weaved to block the view of the inside. When looking the photo carefully, we also find that the thin branch on the outer layer are carefully arranged in size and bamboo's joints.

We can look at the inner layer between the branches of outer layer. The thin bamboos of the inner wave with regularity.

This Villa was elaborately made up in every minute.

Kyoto is such a well preserved historical city. It truly is a living museum of past arts and culture of Japan. Btw, you have a great website.

mimmu and walter
Thank you for your compliment:-)
Kyoto and Kanazawa preserve Japanese traditional culture more than Tokyo.
