Ski slopes, Daisen during winter etc.
Daisen is the tallest mountain in the Chugoku Area of Japan and is one of the 100 most famous mountains of Japan. It is also referred to as the “Houki Fuji” and as such, from particular angles, the mountain resembles the world renowned Fuji Mountain.
Despite the height of 1709M at the centre of the climb at Mt Misen and 1729M at the rim of the mountain, you are able to experience dramatic views much like those from Alps.
Up until a fifth station of the mountain, the biggest beech forest in Western Japan extends across the mountain with many wild species of birds greeting us along the way and from around the sixth station of the mountain, you are able to look down on the skirts of Daisen Mountain below us as well as the Sea of Japan.
On the summit of the mountain is the “Daisen Kyaraboku” forest and flower fields, which are always alive with tourists.
Daisen Guesthouse Juan is located in walking distance from the starting point of the climb, so it is easy to partake in the Daisen climb, walks through the beech forest and visiting the Daisen shrine or Ohgamiyama temple.
Moreover, during winter, the ski slopes are a 15 minute distance from the guest house and is a convenient residency for skiers. You are also able to enjoy winter mountain climbs and snow shoeing. Daisen has enjoyments all throughout the 4 seasons. Please visit at least once to enjoy the many wonders that it supplies.
