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.

So magnificent!! Mountain is close! @Kozan-ji Temple
Do you know a famous scroll called Cho-ju-giga ( Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Humans)? This temple is keeping the original one.


This is Sawa-no-ike Pond where we’ll stop by and have lunch. You can cook lunch like a photo above.

(My friend, Steve walked on this route about two year ago. His blog about this route is fantastic and fun!! Worthy to read if you’ll try walking on this route.


We can see Mt.Daimonji located in the east side of the city from the route.
