Why don't we have a view of Kyoto city in late autumn from the window of the cable car or ropeway?
It connects the base of Mt. Hiei and the Cable Yase Station to the middle slope of Mt. Hiei for 1.3 km "Eizan Cable".
With a height difference of 561 meters, it is the highest in Japan, and you can enjoy a 9 minute walk in the air to Cable Hiei Station which is the last stop.
Eizan Cable is open at night on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays until Sunday, December 6.
You can enjoy the night view of Kyoto from the train window of Eizan Cable and Cable Hiei Station.
From the mountainside of Mt. Hiei to the Hieizancho Station, take the "Eizan Ropeway" for about 3 minutes and walk 486 meters in the air.
As Japan's first "aerial cable", this historic ropeway was introduced in October 1928.
It is said that at the time of its opening, it was a route connecting Kosodani and Saito of Enryaku-ji Temple on Mt. Hiei.
From the final stop at Hieizan-cho Station, you can take a shuttle bus to the "Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple" World Heritage Site.
When I notice, the sound of winter footsteps is coming close.
Both the Eizan Cable Line and the Eizan Ropeway will be closed for winter use from Monday, January 4 in 2021.
Please go to Hieizan from Yase by then.
For details, please check the official website of Eizan Cable Ropeway.
