Easy day trips from Osaka or Kyoto: Ikoma

I have a soft spot for Ikoma – it was my home for the past 3 years. All my haunts were conveniently by the station – the local baths, the judo massage clinic, the shops, the amazing vegetarian restaurant… Whenever I had excess energy, I could hike up to Hozanji – a beautiful temple complex, like a mini Koyasan, which never got boring. 

With the help of some other Ikoma natives, Johnna Slaby and Brendan Howells, I made a short video introducing Ikoma. If you’re in need of a day trip from Osaka or Kyoto, come check it out, or take up Johnna’s offer and move!
