  • Trail article to read copy that same course's ball was. In the funicular and aerial tramway to the Summit of Mt. Hiei 1700 yen. From Summit walk to Yokogawa Tower → → East Tower. To the Tower room is, 4 km from Yokogawa is training! Trails in promenade or fallen trees, although the difference is not large, there is only you? or a wild course. East Tower is the most gorgeous, calm down and re-built. To ring the Bell, and become a solemn feeling. Full of evil thoughts ^ _ ^; Yokogawa we walked and got a very different world.

  • I hiked on Kyoto Trail to Mt.Hiei. It was very difficult but signs were good enough to guide you to the end. Cable cars and buses must be better options if you journey would be in winter.

Hiei monks like martial arts, and Yoshitsune met on Gojo bridge as retainers he served to the end; Some words, such as widely used as synonymous with superhuman strength and hero, also in the Yoshitsune to serve marvelous warriors as one's Achilles heel
