This map is the possible routes to get up to Fire Ceremony at Mt Hiei and down again.
The sakamoto cable car is JP's longest and highest. Great Views.
It is a shorter walk down to Yase than back to the cable car and then bus back to kokusaikaikan station. Plus get to see a gem of a hidden temple on the way.
