The Kyoto Trail: Daimonji-yama and Mount Hiei, Kyoto, Japan

17th of November 2017

Today I take on the Kyoto Trail from Keage to Mount Hiei. Along the way, I pass through temples, forest, Daimonji-yama and end back down to earth via cable car.

  • Location: Sakyo Ward, Kyoto, Japan.
  • Start or End: I started at Keage subway station and finished at the Eizan Ropeway Terminal (from here you can take the ropeway followed by the cable car to Yase-Hieizanguchi Train Station).
  • Length: 14.8km (9.2mi)
  • Grade: Medium to Hard. It is the Kyoto Trail, so it is well trodden, but there is plenty of going up and down (about 350m elevation up and down for Daimonji-yama and then about 700m elevation to Mount Hiei).
