However, you can only experience this during summer in japan, typically between May to September. Getting there can be tricky if you're like me, someone who prefers taking the least costly alternative, rather than to drive or take a cab which is faster and easier. I took the train and alighted at the Kokusaikaikan Station, then headed to the bus stop just above the subway station taking Exit 4. If you're reliant on Google Maps like I was, boarding the right bus at the right station can be tricky and confusing. The boarding area for all busses are on your right when you walk up the stairs from the subway station. Walk to the the bus stop furthest away from the subway exit, and take bus 52, do ask the locals for confirmation. Alight at the Kibuneguchi bus stop and walk along the road, towards the direction pointed for Kibune. There will be a bus stop that takes you to the Kifune bus stop, and then follows an 800 meter up hill walk to Hirobun. ( Coming down will be much easier)
If you are in Kyoto and have some time to spare, I recommend this little adventure. I promise you, all efforts will be paid off.
