We will meet up at the junction of Imadegawa street and Shirakawa avenues and then walk through the narrow and busy little streets that will takes us to the entrance of Gingakujji Temple. Then we'll head towards the mountain trail and after about 45 minutes of moderate, easy hiking we'll reach the historic site of the Gozan no Okuribi festival. There we will enjoy the spectacular view of Kyoto city, together with some hot coffee and biscuits. And then it's all the way back to the meeting place.
Nature lover, outdoor-skills enthusiast, experienced wilderness hiker & camper. Since moving to Kyoto, about 5 years ago , I have spent many days as well nights up in the local mountains, rigorously exploring the countryside, and the many temples & shrines in it. Two years ago, I decided to follow my passion and started organising hiking events for kids and adults, sharing my experience and skills.
