Located in isolated wilderness high on a wooded mountain, Kurama-dera represents a center of worship for an esoteric sect, revering deities of the sun, love, and power. Hike the steep path to the 8th-century temple (which will take around 30 minutes), enjoying the wind through the colossal cryptomeria trees and a Shinto shrine along the way. Alternatively, take the cable car halfway up. Soak in the peaceful atmosphere of this popular--yet untouristed--temple, and observe the forested valley from its terrace, set directly on a mountain slope.

Vegetation has suffered from recent storms, and many trees have been uprooted or cut to prevent them from falling. That said, the hiking trail is well signposted and requires a minimum of physical fitness. The Kurama-dera was created by the monk Gantei, while he was looking for a place to meditate. He met a white horse that led him to the place of the future Kurama-dera.
