MOUNTAINS OF KYOTO 005: MOUNT OTOWA 音羽山


Ah, it’s just great to be back out in the hills. Headin’ up… …Otowa-yama today. Over in the… …eastern reaches… …of Kyoto City… …on the Shiga border. Might get some lovely city views up there, hopefully. I haven’t got much to say. I’m just glad to be out. Great to be out in the hills. See you on top. There she is: Otowa-yama. Up the top. And the sign. Yep, got him. Shame about these fricken powerlines right on top but… …what can you do? Some mountain’s gotta have ’em. Check out the view though! Shiga and Lake Biwa. Hiei-zan, there. Into Kyoto. Still, in all its hazy glory.

  1. I think people come to Kyoto and they don't even think about the wilderness surrounding it. I certainly never have. You're doing a great service with these videos. The sounds of the water / bamboo to start it off was PERFECTION! It's hard to get a true feel of what Kyoto must of been like in the city these days but the views you have show remain almost untouched. It is EXACTLY what past generations have seen – and that is special. Well done!
