Kyoto, Hiking Eizan Electric Railway “Hieizan Enryakuji Temple (East Pagoda)” [Part 1]

Hieizan Enryakuji Temple. Kyoto people say it's a mountain that represents Kyoto, but it's actually Shiga prefecture lol.

Enryakuji is the only World Heritage Site in Shiga Prefecture.

Well, in fact, few people bother to get off in Shiga prefecture and go to Enryakuji.

I don't know what it is.

As for directions, the bus is the fastest after getting off Kyoto Station.

However, I recommend the train. There is a ropeway on the way, so it's nice to have a little taste.

From Kyoto Station, take the Karasuma Line to Karasuma Oike Station, take the Tozai Line to Sanjo Station, and take the Keihan Line to Demachiyanagi Station. About 40 minutes in total.

Eizan Electric Railway is finally here. Please take the train bound for "Yase".

Gradually head towards the mountains while looking at the downtown scenery of Kyoto.


Eizan Electric Railway runs lightly. It feels good.


The driver's seat can be seen perfectly. It's fun to watch this.


Arrived at Yase station in no time. Even so, it's about 20 minutes from Demachiyanagi station.


The river is right in front of you when you leave Yase Station. Cross the bridge.


Already a superb view. good atmosphere.


Yes, "Cable Yase Station" is about a 3-minute walk.


This is the cable car. The slope is already steep.


On the way, I don't know if it's like a lodge or a witch tower.

Oh, I heard that there was a ski resort a long time ago, so I wonder if it's a remnant of that.


The slope inside the car is also amazing. It feels like the stairs are running as they are.

It feels good to see the scenery well.


arrival. .. Not a station on the way. From here, change the cable car and head towards the top of the mountain.

Even so, I wonder if there are people who only buy tickets up to this point.


For about 5 minutes before departure, throw a plate into a common ring and do a system that will make your wish come true.


Please write your wish on the plate. It is easy to receive wind resistance only on the plate, and draw a ridiculous curve into the trees.

This is impossible even for a major leaguer. ..


It became a little small and started again.


The feeling of watching the drone image in real time is interesting.


It's expensive. Overlooking the city of Kyoto. It was supposed to be a little cloudy.


Arrived at "Hieisancho" station. Well, I'll walk from here.

Today I have decided to go on a picnic, no hiking, to see Enryakuji Temple.

However, I came to the top of the mountain all at once.

Mt. Hiei is roughly divided into three areas: East Tower, West Tower, and Yokokawa.

There are many things to see after arriving at the top of the mountain.

Of course there is a tour bus, but this time I decided to walk to the west tower near the cable car Hiei Sancho Station.

It's good for your health, it's healthy, you can enjoy nature, and it's a great hike.


From Hiei Sancho Station, on the way to the tour bus terminal, there is a mountain road, so get off there.

Start hiking immediately. So, if you go a little, it's a spot with a nice view.

It's early, but let's have lunch already.


It would be nice if it was sunny.


By the way, do you eat and walk?

There is a little temple-like stone monument along the way, and I feel like a monk.


There are many stone monuments so that the nation may be at peace.

It's a temple that Emperor Kanmu expected from the nation's well-being.


Idyllic hiking trail. You don't have to have too many people.

But the road is solid, so I feel like I'm connected.


The signpost is also shiny. The history is hundreds of years.


A mountain road that seems to be even more wonderful during the fall foliage season.


It can be said that it is one of the leading hiking trails in Japan where you can enjoy both nature and history at the same time.


Apparently it is already in the precincts of Enryakuji Temple.

Where is the mountain and where is the temple?

Like the signpost buried in this soil, the boundary seems to be united.


I wonder if there used to be a temple around here.


There is also a little temple. I feel like I'm in the mountains.

Tonight, I feel like spending the night renting this temple or the eaves.

Well, the reality is a day trip.


The stone pavement that makes you feel the history and the nature of moss and cedar are also attractive.


Nobunaga's Siege of Mount Hiei is amazing.


It took about 30 minutes to walk and finally arrived at the east tower. Continue to [Part 2].
