There are two Trail Courses; one is about 70-kilometer course running inside or along the mountain sides encircling Kyoto City and the other is about 40-kilometer one in Keihoku area.
The Trail path (Higashiyama, Kitayama (eastern and western) and Nishiyama Courses) starts from Fushimi-Inari and goes to Kurama through Higashiyama, Mt.Hiei and Ohara. And then, it leads you from Nishigamo to Arashiyama and Koke-dera Temple through Takao and Kiyotaki. There are lot of historical temples and shrines near the Trail Course, so you will enjoy both walking and getting a feel for history and culture of ancient capital of Kyoto.
Keihoku Course was set up in 2010. This course runs through beautiful scenic rural areas with Kitayama cedar forest and clear stream, and you will enjoy natural feature of Tanba district very much.
Let's walk on the Trail to meet a different atmosphere of Kyoto than usual.
Trail Boards are placed on the Trail path to give you clear direction.
