Kibune to Ohara via Kurama and Konpira-san

Kyoto, Japan

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at Kibune-guchi train station (Google Map Directions) and finished at the Ohara bus terminal (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 18.1km (11.2mi) in about 7hr
  • Grade: Medium to Hard. 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.
  • Date Walked: 13th of November 2017

The Story
