At 1,955 meters in height, Mt. Tsurugi is the second highest mountain in western Japan following Mt. Ishizuchi. Climbing to the top is one of the easiest of the 100 famous mountains in Japan as chairlifts take you from the trailhead to around the middle of the trail. Many visitors enjoy climbing throughout the season.
A virgin forest still remains and there are colonies of alpine plants. You can enjoy different sights from season to season. The mountain is also known as a sacred mountain for mountain worship and 1,800-meter high class mountains range in the surrounding area.
