Travel to Tottori prefecture 1: Grand Mt. Daisen

鳥取旅行 1: 大山の雄姿



I went around a mountain, seashore and a hot spring of Tottori prefecture by car at May 21 and 22.

The main sightseeing spot is Mt. Daisen, Misasa-Onsen (hot spring), Sanbutsu-ji (temple), Tottori Port, Uradome Coast.

Today, I introduce grand Mt. Daisen.

About Mt. Daisen

Mt. Daisen is a volcanic mountain located in Tottori Prefecture, Japan.

This mountain has an elevation of 1,729 meters, and the highest in the Chūgoku region. 

The central part was blown off by an eruption that happened tens of thousands of years before, and an approximately 1 km of ridgeline of C type continues.

The width of the ridgeline is only 20-30 centimeters, and the left and right of the ridgeline are several hundred meters of steep cliff, and traversing is prohibited.

The foot of the mountain is about 35km in a north and south direction, and the snowcapped aspect from the west is compared to Mount Fuji.

This has been the subject of mountain worship from ancient times. 

Today, this area attracts widespread popularity as a national park, leisure on the plateaus, ski, and mountain climbing.

As the altitude of the moving route became high, it became cool, and I could enjoy comfortable drive.

Blessed with splendid weather, the colors of fresh green and flowers were just gorgeous.


On the next time, I introduce other nature and scenery of Mt. Daisen.

    • You can go to Yonago station close on Mt. Daisen by Shinkansen bullet train and limited train “Super Yakumo” for about 3 hours from Shin-Osaka.
      You change this trains at Okayama station.
      Next, you get on a bus to Daisen-Ji from Yonago station for about 50 minutes.
