Mt. Kurama, Kyoto

(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Head up Mt. Kurama to find a place central to the region's natural and spiritual heritage. Topped with a famous temple and shrine, the forested hills are reputedly the home of Sojobo, King of the Tengu (Shinto gods and spirits who inhabit the forests and mountains). The hill has also become known as the birthplace of reiki: fans of the holistic practice flock here to witness the place where the founder of reiki, Mikao Usui, after 21 days of meditation, received the healing energy. For Mt. Kurama and beyond, use our Kyoto itinerary maker to get the most from your Kyoto vacation.

  • Visited the Kurama Fire Festival at. Las Fallas is tremendous congestion, keep walking ahead of time and so requires moderate strength. Eizan electric railway series return was crowded and the pommel horse but not be taken already in the city's best food. Rich pommel horse, the following is nothing but natural events when you want to experience quiet Kurama.

  • 地點搭車方便抵達,是個有歷史味道的地方,乘車處的大天狗是經典,入山處要收愛山費,內部景點很多,但個人覺得是一個寧靜悠閒的好地方。 
  • Kurama-Dera Temple, Kyoto City little more than a mountain for temperature difference, leaves always is much more colorful. I look at Kyoto City a warmer fall can expect here.
