This is an introductory course to the Saba Kaido, recommended for those who want to enjoy a bit of hiking in the mountains.

This course begins in the foothills of Wakasa Obama, and passes several villages as it winds up towards a mountain pass.

“Kyoto is a long way, but it is only 18 ri (approx. 72km).” It is said that the people who carried goods in the old days traveled from Wakasa to Kyoto in a single day and night.
The suggested itinerary of 3 days and 2 nights allows time to fully appreciate the culture and scenery along this historic route.
