We went to see the mountain burning festival in late January. There were lots of people but the foot of the hill was spacious enough for everyone to get a good view. They had fireworks with background music for at least 20 mins before the...More
I recall climbing this hill 25 years ago, on my first visit to Nara, when it made an impression on me of tranquility, being alone with the deer, far from the temple crowds. One of the foot paths is closed, but you can still reach...More
Cheap entrance fee cost me only 150yen and the view is amazing. On the way up, u will find a large grassy field before u reach the top of the mountain. It is a wonderful spot to see the sunset. A must go destination for...More
We started going up the slope after paying 150 yen of entrance fee. Then we took the steps right next to the toilet and went all the way up the 3rd hilltop and the summit. It was tiring but an easy hike. By the time...More

The mount wakakusa is composed of 3 hill. If you use the regular entrance (150yen), from the bottom to the first hill, you are using stairs. It took approximately 10/15min. To reach the 2nd and 3rd hill, no more stairs but it ain't going up that much. It ks maybe 10/15min again between each of them. I would say it is a really easy hike.
You should be able to do it carrying your children. Take your time ;)

I saw people doing much harder hike with baby, kids, new born child in China were you would have 2h hike to reach the top with only stairs...
