Travelling Japan Collection:
Mount Daisen (大山, Daisen) is a large, volcanic mountain that rises up from sea level to dominate the terrain of western Tottori Prefecture. Part of Daisen-Oki National Park, the 1729 meter high mountain is the tallest in the Chugoku Region and is included on the list of Japan's 100 famous mountains. Daisen has not erupted is several thousand years.
Introducing sight seeing and popular places.
1.Daisenji Temple, whose buildings are spread out along the wooded slope and are connected by mountain trails, was built near the base of the mountain and is an important Buddhist temple.
2.climb up Mount Daisen. The top of the mountain is made up of a ridge with several peaks, the highest of which, Kengamine Peak (1729 m), lies along an unstable knife's edge ridge that has been closed since an earthquake eroded the trail in 2000. Instead hikers can climb as far as Misen Peak (1709 m) which lies just a few hundered meters away.
3.Kagikake-toge Pass south of the mountain
Around late October and early November, the maple and beech forests that cover the mountain slopes turn brilliant shades of autumn colors. One of the best places to view the leaves is from a parking there a lot here.
My view: It's the right choice to visit Mount Daisen for ppl who love hiking,natural travel there the right place to visit specially in autumn season with a beauty of autumn colors here.
