Thu. Mar. 30. 2023Mt. Funaoka Hike

On February 22, students went for a short hike to Mt. Funaoka, which is located in northwestern Kyoto.

Uriel Doddy (KCJS34 Spring, Yale University) shared his comment:

“Last week, a group of us went on a hiking trip to climb Mount Funaoka. We were lucky to go on a day with perfect weather, and the sakura trees on the mountain were starting to bloom, so we could feel that spring had arrived. The mountain has pretty views of Kyoto, and we also got to see Kenkun Jinja, the shrine on the mountain, which enshrines Oda Nobunaga and is said to be where the black tortoise Genbu lives. After exploring the shrine and getting goshuin stamps, we ate lunch on the mountain and ended the trip by visiting Imamiya Jinja nearby. It was a perfect spring activity and I was glad to explore a part of Kyoto that I hadn’t had many chances to visit yet.”

Thank you to Uriel for sharing your comment!
