Kurama trail done the reverse way as this path shows. Starting in the steep stairs of the temple, this is where most of the photos should be taken. It's first going up and then down. The reverse path is easier than the one this guide shows.
Both starting and finishing areas are kind of expensive, so prepare food on advance. There is no water between Kurama temple and the kaiseki restaurants near Kibuneguchi.
However, at the entrance of the path you can get wooden walking staffs which help a lot.
Landscape is beautiful, specially nice so close from Kioto, but nothing spectacular.

Beautiful well maintained trail between Kibune and Kurama. Good inclines and declines. We walked it with backpacks but we saw ladies in dresses on the trail. Gorgeous area!

My wife and I did the Kurama Hike this morning. We started at 9 am. We reached the Kurama Temple , the birthplace of the Reiki practice. There are lots of stairs and cedar trees throughout the trail. It took us 1 hour to the top and 1 hr down. I did stop a few times to take pics and vids w/ my GoPro 5 and smartphone. Fun and amazing. You will embrace the Japanese spirit and culture.

lovely wooded hike with many shrines. it's easy to access via the local train and makes for a good loop. I wish the river meals next to kifune were cheaper.

Green leaves were so beatiful.
Sound from Kibune River was comfortable.
