Mystical Ascension of Kurama Temple for a Zen Experience near Kyoto

There is no doubt that Kyoto concentrates an unparalleled quantity of temples and shrines. One of these treasures is the Kurama-dera, perched on Mount Kurama and easily accessible by train from Kyoto. A unique place to discover with happiness after a Zen climb in the heart of lush nature ...

 

The ascent to Kurama-dera

Get off at the last stop , at Kurama station. Just out of the station, a huge Tengû , the famous god with the long nose, will welcome you. The Tengu are often considered benevolent kami ( Shinto deities).

A funicular, installed very close to the station, allows faster access to the temple; but between us, it is strongly advised not to take it and to make the ascent on foot . The discovery of Kurama-dera also passes through this walk in the forest.
