Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Lunch together on the mountain summit!!

Hiking on Mt. Daimonji

Why don’t you go hiking together on Mt. Daimonji?

Mt. Daimonji (450m altitude) is the most popular mountain in Kyoto, Higashiyama eastern part of the city. It’s famous for a unique sight of mountain surface with a big Chinese character “大”, Dai.  This character is burned on every August 16th when is the day of sending the ancestor to the another world. Kyoto locals and tourists are looking for seeing this sight in every summer time.

This time, journal Kyoto & Green Tour Kyoto would like to invite you to hike this popular mountain and stand on a part of its big Dai character! The view from the summit is fantastic! You can see Kyoto city surrounded by some mountains and a lot of temples in a basin.
