A little less than an hour away from Kyoto's urban district by car, the quaint village of Kurama is an excellent retreat for those in search of privacy and relaxation. Enjoy the thrill of a mountainous drive while breathing in clean fresh air from Kurama River. The area is lush with Kitayama Sugi (Japanese cedar) and the "HOUROKU-YU" hot spring located at the foot of the mountain evokes a sense of mystery.
