The state of euphoria associated with the accomplishment of a hike up a hill or a mountain in a foreign city spiced up my exploration of this city. You gained a better insight of what the city offers and the lovely memory left an indelible...More

For a view like that, you'd think the hike should be harder, but it's not! 45 minutes and done. We loved this hike. We got step-by-step instructions from insidekyoto and went at 7:30am. It was tucked away behind the Silver Pavillion and was absolutely gorgeous...More

If you like walking & you like views just do it. I loved it. Absolutely brilliant. Yes, it is up hill so be warned. But there were lots of 9 year old school kiddies up there (I asked them their age) so you too, can...More

I enjoyed the hike the Mt. Daimonji. The hike is not super hard, but still, if you are not trained it could be hard. Have enough water with you and be prepared to walk up a lot of steep stairs. Once you arrived the "top",...More

Pretty easy walk, last part with the stairs is the hardest but still achievable if you are a regular exerciser. Great view and great way to finish a day of sight seeing.

Took about 50 mins going up as I wasn't very fit. Views from the top were well worth the 'pain'! Highly recommend to those who are not keen on the commercialized stuff. One of the highlights of my Kyoto visit!
