Yoshida-yama(See the map of My Kind Of Kyoto
) is about 15minutes'walk from Philosopher's walk.
Yoshidayama is to the north of Ginkakuji-temple(See my categoly
. "yama" means Mountain in English.
Yoshidayama is almost covered with Yoshida-jinjya and Munetada-jinjya, which once was a part of Yoshida-jinjya.
What is great about Yoshida-yama is rather a hill than a mountain, so you can get to the top easily and there you can take a rest at Japanese style cafe named "Moan". Here
is official site in Japanese.
It opens from 11:30〜18:00. Lunch Time 11:30〜14:00
Monday closed,when Monday is a national holiday, Tuesday will be closed.
I guess there are lots of young waitress and waiter so you could speak in English to them on the phone if you have any question to ask before visiting.
As you see in the picture, you see Daimonji-yama and Japanese Maple trees if you go up the Yoshida-yama from the east entrance.
East entrance is here
