One of my favorite shrines to visit in northern Kyoto! The shrine itself sits in a small town that has a very different feel from the bigger cities and makes for an awesome and interesting experience.
On the way to the shrine you can take pictures on the staircase with the lanterns. Definitely explore the smaller shops within the city!

You can get there by a series of trains and busses but it's remote enough to not be too busy. It's surrounded by forest and has a river along the side of the quaint village with a series of small waterfalls. Great food and local architecture

Lots of connecting(bus and trains) to get here but the shrine is very beautiful from the entrance. And the view along the way are also very nice. Worth going here and would love to visit here again during winter

Visitors can take train from Osaka to Kurama Station (鞍馬駅, Kurama-eki, station number: E17)。And start to enjoy peaceful hiking(down hill), around 2 hrs to the temple-貴船神社（きふねじんじゃ). There are some restaurants around the temple so you can have some supply than. As you can see the photos regarding steps with snow is most famous scenery here.
