Already the penultimate day … What time pass quickly ! Today, with a mixed but mild weather, it is a bucolic day. Kyoto is a city full of charm, but here I am a little overdose with crowds, cars and various sounds. So towards the mountains to the north-east early and the village of Ohara. What calm, what silence, what tranquility … All the participants are in heaven !
By following these pilgrim paths that climb the hill, we are projected into a past tinged with spirituality, a rich and inner experience. The day begins with the visit of the temple Jakko-in and its garden …
… then continues with an unmissable stage of Japan, an experience not to be missed under any circumstances … we relax in the onsen to live the unique ritual of the traditional hot bath ! I present its universe to you …
Then, towards THE huge temple of Ohara, Sanzen-in. Great! In addition, a multitude of small streams and waterfalls at every turn, in any direction where the eye fall on … Everything I love !
To finish, a little pearl, as I prefer … where we will let ourselves be seduced once again by a matcha tea. Served according to the ceremonial, the beverage relaxes and resources. We then recall the sensations experienced in this incredible Japanese nature.

Return to the city and see you tomorrow for the last day !
