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.
Hi, Wow this is amazing! I’m going to add it to my itinerary no matter what. Can you let me know which is the best way to get to the mount Hiei from Kyoto? And at which times does the Eizan railway and cable car (ropeway) operate? I’m travelling during mid-NOvember peak season, so a little concerned about the crowds and would like to avoid the rush hour.
