-Trekking from Bishamondo to Nanzenji via Mt. Daimonji -
Aren't you tired of busy sightseeing spots a little bit? Don't you want to move your body, and enjoy workout on the mountain path with calm historical sites? I recommend this trekking tour. This tour involves hiking from Yamashina Bishamondo temple to Ginkakuji Silver Pavillion via Higashiyama trekking route and Mt. Daimonji with its panoramic view. Bishamondo Temple might be lesser know place, but it is one of the special temples serving royalty and nobles and also famous for autumn foliage.

Fantastic day out with Koichi - the perfect mix of culture and nature, and a really fun, caring and informative guide. Strongly recommended to anyone visiting Kyoto! I loved the short trek and the stroll on philosophers path. Don't miss it!
