🐐Peaceful Forests & Rustic Farmland Hike (+ feed the goats)/奈良街道ハイキング🐐

Kuragari Toge: The Pass into Darkness

For over 1,000 years Osaka and Nara have been connected by the Nara-kaido Road over the shoulder of Mt. Ikoma via Kuragari Toge (The Pass into Darkness).

This historic path winds its way through rustic farmland and peaceful stretches of forest and montane wetland before reaching the peak of Kuragari Toge, and then traversing the face of Mt. Ikoma. Viewing decks with expansive views of Osaka City, and quaint and historical shrines and temples dot the route.

We will also make a stop at the Lucky Garden Cafe and Restaurant for your choice of food, drinks, dessert.

There we will also feed and play with their goats and sheep.

Participation fee: ¥1,500
