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.

Spring Hiking Plan 2017

The plum blossoms are in full bloom now, but today is quite cold..March is described like “four-day warm after three-day cold”. That’s exactly. Can’t wait for spring really come.

Green Tour Kyoto’s next hiking will be held during a cherry blossom season in April.
We will start at the Yamashina district, west part of Kyoto city, then walk toward Bishamon-do Temple that is famous for many of beautiful cherry trees. After seeing cherry blossoms, get started to walk up on the mountain.(altitude 200m, so easy!)
Take a break and cook for lunch in the mountain. (First highlight is sakura cherry blossoms and the second one is lunch!)
Keep walking for about 2 hours, finally arrive at Keage area and enjoy the popular spots for cherry blossoms again.
So, for this time, the hiking will start with sakura and finish with sakura. Look gorgeous, don’t miss it!


Date: April 2nd, Sunday

Meet at JR Yamashina Station (don’t worry, the exit is only one) at 8:30. (within a few minute-walk from Yamashina Station on Subway Tozai line or Keihan line) The hiking will finish around 12:30-1:00pm.

Fee: ¥1,500 including lunch and dessert (¥1,000 for students)

*Please bring a 500ml bottle of water for cooking soup.
