Kinukake: Draped silk and Heritage
Kinukake-no-michi (きぬかけの路), was opened in 1963 and first called Kanko-doro (Tourist’s road), however since 1991 it has been called Kinukake-no-michi or Draped silk road, chosen from a local contest. The name Kinukake originates from the Heian Period (794-1185) and Emperor Uda who wanted to see snow in summer, so his followers draped many white silks over Mount Kinugasa.
This historic road which runs approximately 2.5 km through the foothills of northwest Kyoto, links three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kinkakuji (Temple of the Golden Pavilion), Ryoanji and Ninnaji.
In addition to the World Heritage sites, numerous other major Kyoto attractions are scattered around the Kinukake-no-michi road. It is an excellent area for walking and enjoying other temples and shrines, galleries, museums and more.
