1:00 PM to 6:30 PM
Save Your Spot:
We will go on a 6 km walk through the forest and arrive at Kifune in Kyoto to experience the meaning of Tanabata with the thousands of wishes written on pieces of paper which are then attached to the many trees in the temple grounds ( you can write a wish too). Y
We will be lucky enough to go in the light up season...where the jinja will shine bright in the sky on the side of the mountain.
Also s visit to nearby Kurama is a must..... a place famous for its incredible tree root system: jaggers out of the ground like tentacles....a really nice effect:)
