Keage Incline・蹴上インクライン

Cherry blossoms at Keage Incline, part of the Lake Biwa Canal system. Planted with cherry trees, the now-abandoned train track is a popular photo location.

125 years ago, the flowing water generated enough hydro electricity to power Kyoto’s first streetcar system. The canal still supplies Kyoto with water from Japan’s largest freshwater lake.

Taken in Kyoto, Japan
