Temples of the Warrior Monks

Join us for a trip into Kyoto’s past as we visit the mountain fortress-temples of the fierce sohei, medieval Japan’s warrior monks. We take a scenic cablecar ride up a mountain to Enryakuji, a World Heritage Site, then take a cablecar down the other side of the mountain for an epic view of Lake Biwa and the mountains of Shiga in their full autumn splendor. We then visit Enryakuji’s archrival temple, and finish with sunset at one of the Eight Classic Views of Omi. Recommended for history buffs, nature-lovers, and photographers!
