Kyoto, Kyoto Map
VIEW FULL MAP

An extended walk after Philosopher’s walk, culture and beautiful cherry blossoms with colorful kimonos.

A Shinto shrine. Mostly paved with a lot of stairs. Many small shrines along the way. Tori gates cover much of the trail. Nice view of Kyoto half way up. The trail is lit after dark. Many shops for food and souvenirs, but only open during the day. Lots of vending machines - so, it’s not necessary to bring water. The All Trails map is missing half of the loop trail at the top of the mountain.

Pretty an very easy to navigate.

So I actually did this by accident. I was just exploring on one of my off days, when I just happened to summit a mountain and found out what I had done. It was an amazing hike: very beautiful. I saw a fox, which made my day. Plus a few deer. It was greatZ highly recommend.

10,000 gates. Quite lovely. Definitely get up early if you want your walk to be more serene and if you'd like your photos to be without people.

Thanks for the guide. It was very clear and I had no trouble following your tour. I went there relatively late, so by the time I hit the 8th/9th stop, it was getting kind of dark. I ended up turning back and didn't go all the way to 11th stop. It was a really great tour and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I took tons of photos there. I even gave an American couple directions with your tour. It was awesome! :-)
