I hiked in Higashiyama in Kyoto, Japan.

Kyoto is a basin surrounded by mountains on three sides.

These are Higashiyama (East Mountain), Nishiyama (West Mountain), and Kitayama (North Mountain).

I hiked in Higashiyama( East Mountain).

This is also the mountain behind the famous Ginkakuji Temple( silver pavilion ).

After an hour’s hike from Ginkakuji Temple I reached Hidokoro, ( fire place)which is used for the famous Daimonji Fire Festival, a summer event.
