This beautiful hike is the perfect half-day trip out of the city. You start with a 30-minute train ride up to the lovely mountain village of Kurama, nestled in the Kitayama Mountains north of Kyoto. Then, you hike up and over Mt Kurama, via the mystical Kurama-dera Temple.

You descend into Kibune, an incredibly quaint riverside village on the other side of the mountain. Finally, you walk or take a bus down to the train station at Kibune-guchi.

This hike can be done by anyone in good physical condition, but note that it involves some climbing and some uneven terrain, so please be sure that you are comfortable with this before booking.

The guide will meet you at Eiden Demachiyagagi Station in Kyoto by the ticket gates (we will give you details on how to reach this station from your hotel or ryokan by email). The end point of the walk is at Eiden Demachiyanagi Station (your guide can give you detailed directions on how to return to your hotel or ryokan from there).
