Year's end I'll be in the Kansai area.
Osaka first to meet an old friend, who's stopping over before heading to NZ.
I'll have the 6 speed in a rinko, and ride to Kyoto several days later.
(One of the goals of this trip is to follow the Rapha gentlemen's race route in Kyoto, if my knee permits.)

So, I've been trying to find a good route from Osaka to Kyoto.
Found some routes which I like but those are pan flat.

<<removed latlonglab routes ... i can't paste them correctly>>

Anybody got any recommendation for a more scenic route?
Simple detours with simple climbs, to keep the body/blood warm.
