The Kyoto Trail


The 70-kilometre Kyoto Trail takes you all around Kyoto’s mountains, from the southern mountains of Fushimi Inari all the way round to the western mountains of Arashiyama. Many of Kyoto’s best temples and shrines are on the route. You’ll also see numerous waterfalls and cross multiple streams.

The trail is not extremely challenging although there are many ascents and descents. Most people do the trail on separate days. A determined hiker should be able to complete this in 3 days.
