I am planning a day trip for my family to Kurama and Kibune in mid April.My goal is to escape the crowds, enjoy some different scenery , have some exercise and try some good foods. We are not planning on visiting an onsen.
Should we visit Kurama first and then Kibune or vice versa?
How long will the hike between Kurama and Kibune take?
I know that April is too early to enjoy the summer dining platforms, but will most the restaurants still be open on a weekday?
Does anyone have a restaurant recommendation?
How frequent are the trains travelling from Demachiyanagi to Kibune/Kurama?
