Kyoto is an ancient city visited by people from around the world, but many fascinating places are left out of the regular tour guides. While the main tourist attractions are connected by public transportation, lesser-known locations can only be reached by walking a fair distance. Strolling along a path that cuts through the mountains around the Kyoto Basin, you’ll find stunning landscapes and historic sites. With archeologist Toshio Kajikawa as our guide, we enter the mountains from the east of Nanzen-ji Temple, view the site of Ansho-ji Kamidera, long abandoned after being built in the Heian era, then emerge to the north of the Yamashina Basin. Join us as we “new teku teku”!
