THIS IS MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO IN JAPAN!!! The Japanese know their hot springs!
There are numerous onsens (hot springs) that you can visit in Kyoto, but Kurama is possibly the most easily accessible from Kyoto city and can be easily done in a day trip (something very relaxing to break up the non-stop sight-seeing). The view while sitting in the <i>Rotenburo</i> (outside bath) is spectacular.

Directions: 29 min by train (Eizan line) from Demachiyanagi Station to Kurama Station (Keihan-line). Then take a shuttle bus to the hotel or walk for 10 minutes. I recommend the walk as the scenery is quite nice
othercontact: <ul><li>The baths are segregated

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
