Great place to visit on a half-day trip. The Kifune Ginga Shrine offers the fresh air of nature and the richness of culture.
The highlight was the fortune telling that worked only after dipping in water. Use the QR code to interpret your fortune.
Other than the distance to Kyoto, was an excellent trip. Would recommend for those with a little more time in Kyoto.

Definitely worth it if you're nearby Kyoto. It's a little far but it's a nice day trip. It's a little tiring if you want to climb the mountain, so be aware of that. Beautiful views, nice shrines and not crowded as other Shrines.

Cool place with calm environments around. Deep in the mountains but with MRT and bus it's not so hard to get there. You can enjoy trail hiking, traditional Japanese shrines, and restaurants nearby that are kind of built on rivers.

Beautiful mountain shrine. Great fun to soak your feet in the river when the summer is super hot there.

Gorgeous little shrine in a beautiful valley. It is really worth the visit. And if you go in summer you will be able to have lunch in one of the many restaurants "over" the river.
