Mt. Hakkyou (Wikipedia) is the highest point of the Omine mountain range, and the tallest peak in the Kansai area. It’s also situated along an ancient pilgrimage route, offering some of the most unspoilt scenery in western Japan.
From Abenobashi station (阿倍野橋駅）in Tennoji (天王時), take a Kintetsu train bound for Yoshino (吉野) and get off at Shimoichikuchi station (下市口). From there, take a bus bound for Dorogawa Onsen (泥川温泉) and get off at the Tenkawa-kawai (天川川合) bus stop. You have two options: Take a taxi for 30 minutes to the trailhead, or start your hike from here.
