It is second time to visit Saga/嵯峨,which is located at North-West side of Kyoto.
Saga has the historical places very much. At the old time, it was like the resort for nobility and they lived this place. I walked around historical area this time from Saga-Arashiyama station!
It’s on the foot of Atago mountain/愛宕山, and there’s Atago Shrine/愛宕神社,that is told as having the luck of preventing fire, on top of the mountain. I hope to go there, but it takes 2 hours by walking… I’m going to visit again with enough preparing to go to the mountain!
Hiranoya is the Japanese restaurant that has long history in Saga. They produce Ayu/鮎(fish) cusine and Shinko/志んこ, which is Dango sweets made by rice powder mainly.
We ordered Shinko and Amazake, They gave strong energy and so delicious !
Power food to climb the mountain!
