  • 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.

  • Haruyama, summer is recommended. (924 m). Climbed up for winter training. Start from hozu-gawa station, joined the ATAGO shrine (break, change of clothes and light crampons attached) visit to the shrine was. Ambient was still snow is 20 cm. ... 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. Think going down the mountain safely clean and has great reflection.

  • 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

  • Here is higher than Mt. Hiei (848 m) (924), but Kyoto is not. Is Kyoto's because everyone in sakyo-Ku, Ohara momoi is a mountain (minagoyama, 972) have the wrong way (. Is actually talking about 50 m) (1000 m the highest peak in the State by the way not only four of the Chiba (408 m), Kyoto, Osaka (959 m), Okinawa (526 m). However, Osaka NARA side is at the Summit of the Mt. Kumgang just in 1053 m is the highest point. So, there is no place more than 1000 m are only three. Be-, Kyoto's 山ba I'm...)
