Kisaichi Surprise

The rail system in Japan is overwhelming at first, but surprisingly easy to navigate after a couple of runs. Today I learned that it even links you up with hiking trails. So, well done to whoever thought of that.

I’ll set the scene for you and then let the pictures do the rest of the talking:

It was a cool 30 degrees celsius outside with approximately 80% humidity. I was sweating profusely before the hike even started.

The day began at Hirakatashi Station. We switched over from the Keihan line onto the Katano line, with Kisaichi as our final destination.

Not quite a full-fledged National Park, but well on its way.

A view of the bridge and Kyoto in the distance from the top of the trail.

We ended our hike in the creek for a much-needed cooldown.
