Kurama Onsenくらま温泉

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.

We needed some lunch before the onsen, I had the soba noodles and my husband had the unagi-don. The food was decent, on the pricey side. Would recommend packing a bento box or eating in Kyoto before...

          Kyoto Main Areas


          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
