Kurama Area

A famous area featuring the Kurama mountain, the Kurama-dera Temple and the Yuki Shrine, among other places of interest.

It is said that legendary Tengu spirits live in the Kurama mountain, where Tengu-related goods are sold as a result. The floor featuring a vajra design - a Buddhist symbol of indestructible truth​ - is also a popular spot.
The Kifune Jinja shrine can be accessed by many tourists via Japan's shortest cable car.
The area looks fantastic when the sun sets and lanterns come to life with fire - a must-see.
