Kurama et Kibune

They are two districts out in the wilds, in the North of Kyoto. Going North you will discover a green landscape in summer and red maples in autumn. Arriving at the station of Kibune, you can breathe the fresh air of mountains. Kibune river is a tributary of the Kamogawa River. Right in the middle of the mountain there is Kibune Jinja, an illustrious shrine where we worship the god of water since the Heian period when Kyoto was the capital. On the way, you'll see restaurants and ryokans that install their kawadoko (equivalent of the Kamogawa river's yuka) just above the river.

In the evening of October 22nd, the Kurama Fire Festival is held down Yuki Jinja shrine.
