Off the beaten path halfway atop sacred Mount Ikoma lies Hozanji, a serene place of worship that welcomes the reflective traveler. Take a cable car to the top, or climb up the stone stairway lined with shops and guesthouses, taking in striking views of the valley along your way. Visit in September during the yearly lantern festival for a truly otherworldly experience.
