This month's plans

"This month's plans" offers you some ideas to visit and feel at peace during your stay as well as enjoy seasonal events in Kyoto. They are mostly in outdoor, including some mountains, so that you can enjoy a green and healthy stay and save money as well!

October 16th (Fri) & 17th (Sat)

Himukai-daijingu Shrine Festival

This shrine is connected to Ise jingu Shrine in Wakayama, located in the Higashiyama mountain area of “Kyoto Circuit Trail”. You can see a traditional Shinto ritual on these days in a countrified atmosphere. GTK would like to recommend to go into a big rock called “Ama-no-Iwato”, which is said that the God of Sun kept in this rock in the Japanese myth.
