One Day in Kobe: Strolling Around The Europian Style of Kobe Called Kitano to The Port of Kobe


This was our second time visiting Kobe, a city which is easily reached by train from Osaka. The first time we went to Kobe was only to eat the famous and expensive Kobe Beef. But the second time, we had one day until dark to spend at this beautiful city.

As we didn't have JR Pass, we went to Kobe by the limited express train on the Hankyu Kobe Line. It took us only 25 minutes from Umeda Station to Kobe-Sannomiya Station, and cost JPY320/adult. Hankyu Umeda station is located next to JR Osaka Station.

It was our first time ever to visit Hankyu Umeda Station, and we were amazed of the station. It is connected to a shopping mall, and once we entered the station, the atmosphere was totally different.

The train was already waiting for us

Trekking in Mount Hiei, Followed By Taking The Eizan Ropeway And Cable Car


After our visit to Enryakuji Temple, we continued our journey to go back to Kyoto. From our research, we had to take the Eizan Ropeway and Eizan Cable Car. But to get to the ropeway station, we had to walk through the forest of Mount Hiei.

We left the Enryakuji Temple complex after our visit to the training hall which is called Hokke So Ji-in. The first sign we saw was this, stating that we needed to walk 1.4 km to the Eizan Cable Car Station. Ok, let's start the trekking :)

Don't worry you can read the English part of the sign

Day Trip From Kyoto Part 2: Visiting Enryakuji Temple at Mount Hieizan


Enryakuji temple is located at the eastern mountain range of Mount Hieizan, miles away to the northeast from Kyoto. It is a quite Buddhist temple, and one of the most important monasteries in Japanese history. Up to now, it is one of the largest and most important temple in Kyoto.

It was founded in 778 by Saicho, the monk who introduced Tendai Buddhism from China to Japan. It became a Unesco world's heritage site in 1994, and as a Japan Heritage site in 2015. This peaceful mountain complex is a great alternative to escape the crowded temples in Kyoto, especially during peak period.
