  • Tried climbing on Mt. ATAGO to climb again if the Kyoto people Sagano Interior. Started in hiking style supporters walked Everest route because I had heard many people strain the foot down and do the same, peds trekking shoes, a supporters function under tights, knee, 1 book stock. Water brought two bottles, next to the restrooms in the ATAGO shrine was the vending machine. Kiyotaki bus stop by city bus, getting off the bus into the road on the way down from the signs to the shrine, both come at the same bridge. Restrooms are on the way. When you reach the bridge, stop. I think feeling wither and climb the right-to-left is tsukinowa shrine, kuya falls towards common omote-Sando, right, and not a good Walker. Usually a climb from omote-Sando. 1/40 from guide signs of 41 / 40 of the Black Gate. ATAGO Shrine on the headquarters of the national shrine to arrive, put to rest approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. From the place of 30th Street teahouse ruins (fifth), Arashiyama togetsu-Kyo but looks far below. Once you visit the shrine under benches where the crowds for lunch.. Such outlets. Stairs leading to the shrine is about 240 and is tight at the end, good luck, let's cut to climb. If as shrine steps down, proceed to the left. Signs along down the slope of the lower-right corner. This moment, expands the view of the city below. To detour and return directly to the kiyotaki tsukinowa shrine famous anecdotes drew Fortune three times, before Akechi Mitsuhide to honnoji Temple head down further from there about an hour and is about an hour, but. Go up about 15 minutes watching the proceeds along with river right in front of the bridge to be joined to pass cars from the adjacent little falls and kuya waterfall. On the way passes from one family. "Note on the Viper" on some billboards, and that kuya red Torii gate and soon you'll see it is a waterfall. It was a splendid waterfall beside the waterfall stone, nothing is. I thought I bring swimming trunks, like being struck by the waterfall. However, even when it is not raining long and seems to be. : Kiyotaki bus stop – 2 hours 30 minutes -: Atago shrine decoding channel - 1 hour - tsukinowa Temple - 1 hour 15 minutes - kuya falls-45 - kiyotaki bus stop distance total: 5 hours 30 minutes (put it at lunch time 6 hours 30 minutes) incidentally, soon my sixtieth birthday and my wife I'm in it is time to take photos while we are walking walk at their own pace without lack of chondroitin was walking to run mature young people!

  • I hiked Atago in July of 2017 and several times in the 2000's. The basics are that you need to ride bus 72 from Kyoto station from 7-9AM. Ride the bus to it's final stop at Kiyotaki, and walk down the...  more »
  • Walking from the entrance of kiyotaki normally about 1 hour 30 minutes. Steep stairs until the 20/40. From there, gentle gravel path or stairs and easier to climb. There is a toilet on the top and so have plenty of wooden benches rest. We return to the bi. This road is a gravel road only. After all, climbing from kiyotaki, get off the fun. Also comes as a got a good workout.

It was a reckless plan, Yagi station down through the back of the shrine because the other parties (visitors) is the goal here is ginger, my party idiots every one of them, so that. The summer if this plan also think Ali. ... Lost in the snow, I'm lost. I got to the high voltage line iron Tower survived. So it was all tired out on the asphalt road to determine the current position, go to snow plow through childhood,. ... Ki komagatake mountain in were low pressure storms, but this time the anadotta 924 m and for the haphazardly in planning was the reckless climbers.

  • There is occasional mistakes are relatively easy to climb. So low mountains just to take steps to prepare for climbing safety! Landscape is so-so.

  • While chatting with climbers on the way he met elderly people was up and down. Get talking about episodes related to Mt. Atago, or food in the shelter of the shrines on the Summit and enjoyed it. Feel sweaty two hours each way, so is perfect for hiking, so cold at the top. So, we recommend T shirt into one backpack, take it.

  • Have moderation end Causeway so the climb. I don't climb in high heels, pumps, slippers and shoes. It is not paved dirt trails. I think people lack of physique training so quickly up to 900 m up so hard. And may be in season 11, KEA has snow appear to waver or to say what is saying it's results come in normal clothes, not have to sweat and nearly 3 hours climbing, sweat leaked even pee Visio Visio Usually catch cold the next day. Jersey + easy movements without climbing equipment, easy to evaporate the sweat is good. I think, however scaffold is very bad, so instead of athletic shoes, climbing shoes are good. I see people have fallen considerably. Honest down Yaba? is. The don't forget to rehydrate sweaty in large quantities. Feel sick the cramps happen is lack of moisture could cause high after the crust is, Mt. Atago, the crust is here I don't walk 10 minutes further north. It is a different crust differs from the common pile of round metal plate. Also find people who work until the crust just to sparse so hard I
