Fantastic place not far from Kyoto, with many waterfall and beautiful tree. The hiking is not very easy, and the place tend to be crowed on high season. When we went nobody was there... Magic!

An area of stunning natural beauty, definitely a must see when making your way through Japan, the ~ 90 minute hike to the top is well worth it and you will not be disappointed
