Walk in the Japanese mountains

A brisk walk with a change of scenery  

The opinion of Japan Experience

The unique occasion to explore the Japanese mountains, preserved and respected like nowhere else in the world.

Your Travel Angel's plus

It is one of the reason why Daniel immediately liked Kyoto: its unique location in the heart of mountains. Escaping from the city becomes a child's play. However, to find one's way in this sacred forest and discover the art of bath in an onsen, you'd better be accompanied!


Cedar forest with a mysterious atmosphere, path of roots linking sacred trees, isolated pavilions dedicated to local divinities. At the summit, Kurama temple, famous for its replenishing energy flows offers magnificent views of the valley and the picturesque village by the same name.

A brisk and reinvigorating walk thanks to a hot bath in the natural springs opposite Mount Kurama.

Supplement: transportation pass + onsen ticket (1700 yen) 
If you wish to end your hiking session in the relaxing vapors of an onsen, make sure to bring a towel. On the contrary, bathing suits are not necessary. 

After registration, the organizer will confirm by email a week before the scheduled activity that the tour is running.


Your Travel Angel will contact you to give you the meeting point.
