If you are looking for a break from temple visits and can’t travel far from Kyoto this is your stop! Only 30 min from downtown Kyoto but it feels very remote in a beautiful mountain setting. Riding the electric train up the mountain is part of the fun. Outdoor onsen is wonderful and very serene. We also enjoyed the indoor bath. Restaurant serves good food. A wonderful way to spend a rainy and cool January afternoon.

I spent two days in this Onsen and I really enjoined the place and the therm. It’s very clean and the service is amazing especially if you want to experience the typical Japanese dinner. The best part was the onsen pool. I really recommend to stay here.

Decided to head to Kurama onsen on a wet autumn day - temperatures were still warm. Boarded the train at Demachiyanagi station for a scenic ride to Kurama at the end of the line. Despite the light rain the walk from the station to the onsen took me through the village with many stores open for display. The autumn colours were just beginning to change and there is a delightful small river running alongside the road to the onsen. There is also a shuttle at the station if you are so inclined. I opted for the public pool (1000 yen plus 200yen for small towel). It was all I needed - the onsen was empty and the feeling of the light rain whilst sitting in the onsen looking at the mist covered surroundings was magical. Highly recommended.

A wonderful day adventure. Starting with the Wes Anderson style train ride up the mountain to this serene location. A beautiful outdoor Onsen surrounded by mountains and trees. Both times I have been there has been the slightest drizzle of rain which was more like a mist. Once in Autumn so we were wrapped in hues of orange, yellow, red and green from the surrounding trees. It was so tranquil. The baths are clean and well maintained. The second was in summer and again a slow mist/drizzle was a welcome relief while soaking in the surroundings. The restaurant there is also quite good and reasonably priced. Highly recommended as a day trip.
