Kyoto Prefecture

The three selected snow sceneries from Kyoto

  • 京の雪景色メイン_福知山城
  • 京の雪景色_伊根の舟屋s
During winter season, there are various stunning views of snowy places everywhere including shrines and temples in Kyoto.
Firstly, let me introduce the “Fukuchiyama Castle” which was founded by Mitsuhide Akechi.
The drama of him was aired in the annual historical drama series, Awaiting Kirin (Japanese title Kirin ga Kuru) on NHK, Japan Broadcasting Corporation in 2020.
Secondly, how about seeing a nostalgic winter scenery of Ine Funaya (boathouses) in this fishing village?
You can enjoy the fantastic view of white snow-covered fishing village with mountain range.
Last but not least, Hozugawa River Boat Ride” is another recommendation to enjoy the beautiful seasonal view of the mountains.
The clear mountain stream carries you down 16km showing the seasonal beauty of nature of Kameoka to Arashimaya in a 2-hour trip.
