Kibune to Ohara via Kurama and Konpira-san, Kyoto, Japan

13th of November 2017

Typhoon damage ruined my plans to hike from Kibune to Kurama, but despite the setbacks, the remainder of the hike was filled with stunning scenery.

  • Location: Kibune to Ohara, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto, Japan.
  • Start or End: I started at Kibune-guchi train station and finished at the Ohara bus terminal.
  • Length: 18.1km (11.2mi)
  • Grade: Medium. The trail ranges from quiet roads to somewhat steep and rocky trails. The road from Kibune-guchi train station to Kibune township, the Kyoto Trail sections and around Ohara are rather flat and easy to walk. The most difficult section was ascending and descending Konpira-san, made more difficult by plentiful fallen trees from the recent typhoon. I did plan to walk from Kibune township over to Kurama via Mount Kuruma, but the track was closed due to extensive typhoon damage. I had to backtrack to Kibune-guchi train station and walk along the road to Kurama.
