We meet in front of the well-known Buddhist temple, Ginkakuji. We hike the wild forest to aim at the top of Daimonji mountain. There are many ways to the summit but I will show you the route where few people go hike, so there are still nature living. We can see a small fall and meet wild deer on the way, if we are lucky. About 2 hours hike we can be on the top and have a magnificent view. And enjoy tea and some snack there, then go down.
Hello, I am Daisuke. I work as hiking guide for more than 5 years in Kyoto. I love Daimonji mountain and have hiked here so many times. Even though it is close to city, the nature is amazing. There are many route to the top, but I will show you the route where you can feel the nature and not so many people come^^ Of course, on the top you can have great view of Kyoto!
