Climbing Katsuragi-san

Mount Katsuragi is a small mountain in the chain that divides Nara and Osaka prefectures. There is a ropeway almost to the top but we chose to climb up using the path through the wooded sides of the mountain.
Since most vistors seemed to be using the ropeway to get to the top there were not so many hikers on the path.

The path winds its way up the mountain beside a small stream with the occasional waterfall. Since this is Japan and this is a developed mountain complete with guest house on the top, there are also frequent concrete weirs and wooden bridges.
