With this Experience you'll have a little taste of proper outdoors life! We will pick you up by car from a convenient location and then we'll drive to the north-west of Kyoto, at a secluded, tiny little lake (we'll also make a quick stop just before the lake to have a look at a nice waterfall). It's a scenic, less known - even to the locals - location, well away from the crowds and the busy city centre. At the lake we will "set up camp" , provide for you a quick picnic style lunch, and also show you how to start and enjoy a campfire. Depending on the season and the weather conditions walking around, swimming, fishing or even hiking to the top of the hills also possible. Hiking boots are not necessary, however, comfortable shoes with a good grip, that you wouldn't mind getting them dirty/wet, are certainly recommended. Toilets available only before and after this Experience (you might have to go to the forest).
Lifelong outdoor-skills enthusiast,nature lover, and experienced wilderness hiker & camper. Since moving to Kyoto in 2014 , I have been rigorously exploring the surrounding countryside, spending many nights, all round the year, up in the local mountains, practicing outdoor skills. Three years ago, I decided to follow my passion and started organising outdoor events for kids and adults, sharing my experience and skills.

We'll pick you up from a convenient location near your accommodation and then drive along an ancient route, that at the time (Heian Period, 794-1185 BC) it was the only route to Kyoto. We'll make a quick stop at the Bodai Falls before arriving at the tiny Sawa lake.
