This is the last "covered" spot if you are using the JR West pass. The views are breathtaking, from the moment you get off the train. It seems like you can take a boat ride but we could not figure out where the ride starts....More

A place you can easily travel with JR line. Stop in Hozukyo, then get off the track and there you go, serene and beautiful gorge. It will probably take approx. 15-20 minutes to visit this beautiful place.

Hozukyo is really a place that you must visit if you are going to Kyoto. In my opinion it is like an undiscovered pearl! It's located west of Arashiyama, and I like going there by the JR railway line. JR Hozukyo Station is a station...More
