The Beauty of Kurama - 1

Entrance to deep forests of mysterious Kyoto mountain

The mountains north of Kyoto are known for being mysterious and spiritual. This is especially true of Kurama and its lovely temple. Here, you'll find colorful red goblins with a two-meter long nose, huge ancient cedar trees that climb up up up into the air, wonderful views of the surrounding valleys, and small temples and shrines in the middle of nowhere as you walk up and over the pass to the resort town of Kibune. Oh, I forgot to mention the beautiful statues, the interesting history, and the birth of Reiki Healing. Kurama has it all!
