Itinerary Ideas

Miyama is the hidden quaint village in the north of Kyoto city (center of Kyoto Prefecture).

Here, 38 of 50 houses are thatched houses which are mostly 150~200 years old. Most of them are still used for their houses to live in by the descendants of people (since Edo period). That's why Miyama is designated as 'Important Traditional Building Preservation Distict'.

You can see traditional tools and daily household items as well as the construction and maintenance of the thatched roofs.

How about soba, made from buckwheat harvested in this village? (Please pay attention to their calendar if you want to have lunch here.)


If you are interested in Miyama and want to go there, let's enjoy 1 day short trip from Kyoto. I will take the public transportation such as train and a bus to go there. I hope that you will have a nice trip!
