Travel to the quaint little town of Miyama, north of Kyoto, for a unique winter illumination event. Tucked away in beautiful countryside, away from the hustle and bustle if the busy Kyoto, Miyama offers a true escape into the world of winter magic. Stroll through the village’s narrow streets and see snow lanterns of all shapes and sizes nestled along the streets. Pick from two departure points: Umeda or Namba and start your frosty adventure. Stop by the famous Miyama Milk Store: a great place for sampling dairy desserts. Visit the historic Miyama cottages village and make sure to set your watch for 5:15pm that’s when the illumination festival kicks off!
