Sacred mountain trekking at Mt. Miwa

Sacred Moountain Trekking at Miwa

The mountain trekking at Miwa was an amazing experince!! One I will never forget, and it was made possible by Tomoya! He was super friendly, super helpful, and super patient. He accompanied me all the way to the mountain and took as many breaks as I needed. He helped me understand the significance of the experince, as well as showed me lesser known spots for some very cool photos! If you're an english speaking foreigner, you're in good hands, he speaks english super well! If you're looking to hike Mt. Miwa while you visit Japan, please book Tomoya! You wont regret it!

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!

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.
