Kurama Onsen

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
A hot spring bath facility located at the foot of Mt. Kurama, known as Kyoto’s parlor. In addition to a spacious large bath, visitors can enjoy the secluded atmosphere of the open-air bath while enjoying the rich greenery of the surrounding mountains. The dining hall’s famous local chicken and mountain vegetable rice steamed in an iron pot and the winter-only miniature boar meat hot pot are particularly popular. Also equipped with a relaxing resting room for use after your bath, the facility is perfect for a day trip. There is also an adjoining inn. Kurama Station on the Eizan Electric Railway is the closest station to the bath house.
