Keage Incline is a popular cherry blossom spot in the Nanzen-ji temple and Okazaki area. This national historic site had a 60-year tenure as part of the water transport route of the Lake Biwa Canal until the 1950s. It consisted of a railway that connects two waterways of different elevation from the incline. If you walk on the incline, which only seems to be a railway track, you will feel as if you’re on the set of the classic American film "Stand by Me.” Along the tracks, there are clusters of Yoshino cherry tree, and when they’re in full bloom, it is a sight to behold. Nearby the incline is Biwako Canal Memorial Hall and with no entry fee, why not stop by?
