Shisendo (House of the Great Poets)
Shisendo was built as a mountain retreat in 1640 by Ishikawa Jozan, a writer who wrote Chinese poetry in the early Edo Era. The structure is built simply in the style of a thatch hut. The garden to the front of the study is a dry garden of white sand with dwarf azalea and maple trees. A Shishiodoshi (deer scarer) makes a pleasant sound.

Kawadoko (Kibune)
From Kurama Kaido to Kibune Michi the road follows the Kibunegawa River uphill for over 1km. Parallel to the river are lined Japanese-style inns which serve traditional dishes. In summer, the temperature is cooler than that of the city, and kawadoko (river platforms where you can eat a meal over the water) to enjoy the cool of the evening are set out. The twinkling fireflies flutter about, and it seems quite the private "inner room" of Kyoto. Reservations are necessary, so ensure to book at each restaurant.
