  • After a short walk you get to the top of the mountain where this located this small temple dedicated to Suminokura Ryoi. The young monk of the entrance explain you every detail. You can see some magnificent views of the forest and in the distance the city of Kyoto.

  • After a bit of hiking and stair climbing, I was rewarded by a gorgeous view of the Katsuragawa gorge right below and Kyoto City in the distance. During the fall color tourism season, Kyoto is inundated by tourists. But all you need is a pair of good shoes and a bit of instincts to find a place like this where you can appreciate the things you expected of in Arashiyama minus the crowds.
  • Breathtaking view
  • Nice view from the middle point of the mountain.
  • Amazing.
  • Enjoy the scenery along the river when she walks, she looks a little Hermitage. The walk, but can be a little disappointed in the Hermitage than I thought. Fall foliage as much as 4.4 degrees of landscape scenery but summer sparkler, it is hard to give a high score. We recommend going to the fall of stamina is the Hermitage but also because it seemed to take into account the ascent goes up.
