Default Japan Tour: Mount Tsukuba


Mount Tsukuba or Tsukuba-san in Tsukuba in Ibaraki Prefecture rises to 877m and is clearly visible from the city.

The twin peaks of the mountain are Nyotai-san at 877m and Nantai-san at 871m - "Male Mountain" and "Female Mountain" respectively.

Visitors can reach the peaks by either cable car or ropeway and there are tremendous views over the Kanto Plain below as far as Tokyo and the Sky Tree.

Buses run from Tsukuba Station to both the cable car and ropeway stations at the foot of the mountain and various hiking trails criss-cross the slopes.

Tsukubasan Shrine at the foot of Nyotai-san has festivals on the first day of April and November and there are small shrines on the summits of both peaks.
