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!

good place to walk. very flat. you can find some nice cafes along the path.

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.

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.

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.

The scenery is beautiful, of course, especially during cherry blossom season or fall foliage, but it really is more of a stroll than anything else. The path is flat for the most part; the plus side is that it's almost barrier-free / wheelchair-friendly, the downside is that it can be VERY crowded.
