Kuruma Fire Festival

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Kyoto for the Kuruma fire festival next month (and Jidai Matsuri, on the same date).

Can anyone who's been give some advice for visiting, that's suitable for non-hikers? I know Kuruma is often approached via the walking trails but that won't be feasible for us as I have mild arthritis. I can walk but not for long distances or on uneven terrain.

It looks like we should aim to arrive for around 5 pm, does that sound right? And then what?

Also, if other Fodorites are in Kyoto on the same date and want to meet for this (or just for lunch or whatever) please drop me an email to kaveyf at hotmail dot com.
