Ropeway, Cable car on Mount Hiei


Ropeway on Mount Hiei

Following on from the earlier post, I wanted to show a few shots of the ropeway car that took me to the top of Mount Hiei. It was a smooth ride from the center of Kyoto, first on the Keihan railway to Demachiyanagi station and then on a local line, Eizan railway, to the foot of the mountain, then on a cable car ride which was very comfortable as it progressed up steep inclines, lastly I took the ropeway to the top.

The shots here are a mixture of both the ropeway and cable car. The storyline might be a big back to front as when I was putting it together it started off with 1 photo and gradually I kept adding to it. I have lots more photos from this short 3 hour trip, but this set provides some of the highlights.

I feel like the doorway is sort of smiling at me here as we look at the colorful rear entrance to the Mount Hiei ropeway
