The Satoyama style of living in harmony with nature, and the customs that influenced life in the ancient capital, survive in the mountains north of central Kyoto. Miyama is famous for its thatching tradition, and local artisans use age-old methods to re-thatch Kyoto's temples and shrines. An old inn in the town of Hanase continues to serve the local specialty, Tsumikusa (foraged wild foods) cuisine. Discover the local customs that keep Kyoto's culture alive.
