-From Kifune Shrine to Kurama dera temple-


We will visit Kuramadera which is a Buddhist temple located along the steep wooded mountainside. Behind the temple's main building, the hiking trail continues through the forest to Kibune, a small town famous for Kifune Shrine dedicated to the goddess of the water "Tamayorihime". The hike from Kurama-dera to Kibune takes about one hour. If you like, you can also experience "Onsen" hot spring at Kurama Onsen Resort.

A Recent Review of this tour

Soaking in the onsen (hot spring) Is not for the modest because no clothing is allowed in the soaking bath. Genders are separate and if modesty is not an issue it is worth the experience!
