Welcome to Daisen

The popular climb up the volcano is a five- to six-hour return trip from Buddhist temple Daisen-ji. From the summit, there are fine views over the coast and, in perfect conditions, all the way to the Oki Islands.

The mountain catches the northwest monsoon winds in the winter, bringing lots of snow to what is western Japan's top skiing area. Among the slopes are Daisen White Resort and Daisen Masumizu-kōgen Ski Resort.
