Keage Incline, Kyoto
Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Marvel at a complex work of engineering at Keage Incline, a fin-de-siècle rail system hoisting boats up and down a steep hill. Starting from a picturesque red brick aqueduct, this abandoned two-way rail line runs underneath a canopy of cherry trees, making for a surprisingly romantic hike. Check out a system of bridges, tunnels, locks, and canals disappearing into the mountain, then get closer to inspect the mounted boats and huge, many-toothed wheels. Don't miss the museum at the bottom of the hill, which explains the story of this modern Japanese marvel. Located on the Kyoto side of Lake Biwako Canal, you can reach the incline by alighting at Keage Station.
