Ohara Sanzenin is one of the popular sightseeing spots in Northern Kyoto, and its 1200 year history is continuing from old to contemporary time.

After showing main sightseeing spots such as Sanzenin and Jakkoin of Ohara area, I want to emphasize "one day visit hot spring"!

In Ohara area, there is a tourist inn "Ohara Sanso" where tourists can enjoy hot spring from Ohara area.
Basically this is a inn, where visitors are supposed to stay overnight, but there is "one day visit hot spring plan", too.
