Tired of big cities and historic sites? Then how about surrounding yourself with wild monkeys in a beautiful mountain?

In this monkey mountain, you can enjoy monkeys right beside you with no cages!! They would casually walk right by you.

It takes about 15-20min. walking to get to the top of the mountain, where you can feed monkeys and enjoy the breathtaking view.

There's no place like Monkey Mountain on Earth!!

Beside the mountain, you can enjoy the famous Bamboo Forest and Togetsu Bridge!

Excellent guided day in Kyoto with Masaki aka Makoon !

Makoon is a wonderful guide of Kyoto with deep knowledge of the history and popular culture. We enjoyed our time with him very much. Especially the visit to the zen temple and Ishari shrine!

Amy U.

I can't appreciate enough for your generous review. It was a pleasure to welcome guests from my second home! I'm glad we could talk about a wide variety of things in different places. That sun light in the zen temple was a magic. Sincerely looking forward to seeing you again, maybe in Canada next time!

Arashiyama Sagano Bamboo Forest

Kyoto

I from Arashiyama to Sagano, one of the finest spots in Kyoto. In particular the view form Togetsukyo Bridge crossing over Katsura River is very impressive. Arashiyama is populary known for cherry blossoms in spring and beautifully changing colors of autumn leaves in autumn. You can enjoy walking through bamboo forests. They give us a sense of coolness, especially on May and June they grow lushly.  We visit Otagi and Adashino Nenbutsuji Temple with many small unuque statues.
