Outline

Eizan Railway consist of Eizan Main Line which links to the foot of Mt Hiei, and Kurama Line heading to Mt.Kurama branching halfway from the main line. Fall colors along the line are the main attraction every year but other than autumn season, it becomes a task as to how to attract tourist to the spot. HIEI, remodeled from existing vehicle transformed itself into an all-season attraction tourist train of Rakuhoku area. The two spiritual Mount Hiei and Mount Kurama of Eizan Railway are each symbolized by circle and linked together to form the iconic Ellipse element of the exterior and interior. HIEI not only serves as everyday commuter train to the local but also provides extraordinary travel experience for tourist to travel back in time from modern Kyoto to the ancient sacred mountain.
