    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.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
