Event Details


🎍Hozukyo to the Great Bamboo Forest Walk・保津峡嵯峨野ハイキング🎍

このイベントには英語話さなくていいよ。何人か全く英語話せない!!:)

半分外国人と半分日本人参加するので、メッチャいい雰囲気あります。ハイキングに興味があれば、是非来てください:)よろしくお願い致します。

Enjoy an easy promenade on quiet, forest-lined mountain roads through the lush canyon of the Hozukyo, over Rokucho Toge Pass, through the historic streets of Saga Toriimoto, to the back entrance of Kyoto’s Great Bamboo Forest.

This easy 6.5km~ hike affords multiple views of Kyoto’s lush Hozukyo Canyon, the opportunity to put one’s feet in the Katsura River (and swim if you’re brave enough – Careful! There’s a bit of current), a unique photo opportunity with a large collection of Japan’s quirky Tanuki statues, and more.

There is only one major hill climb (up to Rokucho-Toge Pass), the rest of the way is flat or a gentle down hill. Much of the way also enjoys the shade of trees.

Please bring comfortable walking or hiking shoes, sunscreen, plenty of water, a bento, a blue tarp or other ground covering for when we eat lunch, and a swimsuit and shoes for the river if you wish to wade or take a dip.
