Hello there,

To answer your questions:

1. The Kyoto Sightseeing One or Two Day passes do cover Kyoto Bus (red and cream) trips to Ohara. Usually "Kyoto Bus" is red and cream and "Kyoto City Bus" is green.

2. You can use these passes to get to Yase village (it is on the way to Ohara). From there you need to take a cable car and then a ropeway to the top of Mount Hiei but the cable car is not covered by the pass. The prices for these are as follows:
Eizan Cable Car: Adults: 540 yen, children: 270 yen
Eizan Ropeway: Adults: 310 yen, children: 160 yen

3. Kyoto Bus #17 bound for Ohara (red and cream) goes to Yase Ekimae bus stop from there it is a 2 minute walk to the cable car for Mount Hiei. The bus journey should take about 50 minutes depending on traffic. The normal fare is 390 yen.

4. An alternative to taking the bus is traveling on the Keihan and Eiden railways to Yase and then taking the cable car and ropeway. This route may be easier if you are staying near a Keihan line station. There are discount tickets available for this route:

This ticket includes price of entry to the Enryakuji temple on Mount Hiei: http://www.keihan.co.jp/traffic/valueticket/global/en/pdf/hiei-hieizanoudanticket-2016.pdf

5. An Ohara/Yase One Day ticket is also available from Keihan which covers both Keihan & Eiden railways and Kyoto Bus trips to Ohara: https://www.keihan.co.jp/en/recommend/ohara-yase1day.html
I hope that helps!

Best wishes,

Michael

Thank you very much and appreciate it for sharing this information.

I think the alternative are more convenient for us, since we would be staying near Shichijo Station

Would the ticket for the following be on sale on Shichijo station?

1. Ohara / Yase 1-Day Ticket
2. Kurama / Kibune 1-Day Ticket
3. Hieizan 1-Day Ticket 

And what time would the employee posted arrives?

Would you recommend the Kurama / Kibune 1-Day Ticket which cost 1,600 yen vs 1,380 yen  via (Shichijo to Demachiyanagi, Demachiyanagi to Kibune, Kurama to Demachiyanagi and Demachiyanagi to Shichijo)

Hello again,

Yes, you can buy those tickets from Shichijo Station. The station will be staffed from the time of the first train until the last train at night. I think the Kurama/Kibune ticket is a good deal. You can find out more here: http://www.keihan.co.jp/travel/en/index.html

Best wishes,
