Keage Incline lies at the Kyoto end of Biwako Canal, and was an important transport route between Kyoto and Lake Biwa during the Meiji Era. A short rail system was constructed here to move boats over the change in level between Biwako Canal and the canal along Niomon-Dori. These days it is a tourist attraction, especially when the cherry trees are blooming in spring.
