Kyoto Botanical Gardens Followed by a Meander Down the Kamogawa to Gion, Kyoto, Japan

16th of November 2017

Exploring an inner-city oasis with plenty of autumn colour followed by a hop, skip and jump on the Kamogawa to the home of the Geisha.

  • Location: Kyoto, Japan.
  • Start or End: I started at Kitayama subway station (located on the northern side of the Kyoto Botanical Gardens) and finished at Kyoto train station.
  • Length: 12.9km (8.0mi)
  • Grade: Easy, except for the stepping stones across the Kamogawa (one wrong step and you might find yourself in the drink).
