Where you'll be

Going up Mount Kurama, we will visit Kurama Yama temple at the top of the mountain, which is a 40 minute walk. After a 30 minute rest, we will walk again, and go down the trail and seeing huge roots of cider trees coming out from the ground. We will arrive at the Kifune Shrine. After visiting there, we will take the easy slope along a beautiful stream called Kifunegawa to Kifune station. From there, we will go back.
