Hiking Trail in Mount Hiei
Hiking Mount Hiei Activity
Hiking Mount Hiei from Sakamoto. The hike is only an hour, and there is an UNESCO temple complex at the top.

Mt. Hiei is the second highest mountain in Kyoto, at 848 meters (2,782 feet), and just a short distance northeast of downtown. It is more than just a pretty mountain though.
