The Kyoto Trail: Daimonji-yama and Mount Hiei

Kyoto, Japan

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at Keage subway station (Google Map Directions) and finished at the Eizan Ropeway Terminal (Google Map Directions), from here you can take the ropeway followed by the cable car to Yase-Hieizanguchi Train Station.
  • Length: 14.8km (9.2mi) in about 6hr
  • 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).
  • Date Walked: 17th of November 2017
