     Overlooking beautiful individual Bong is not part of the mountains to around minus the long show. 拝meru a variant called the south wall from appearance has been nicknamed hōki Fuji in a neat triangle seen mainly from the West, but with sharply cut from the North and South. At Yonago Expressway, and from the south wall and hōki Fuji, is quite dramatic. Was once a Mecca of skiing in Western Japan, but fewer key population and the recent spring-fall season green tourism is thriving. You can enjoy tourist-style around the mountain base of tourist facilities and the time consumption while you are driving. Advance schedule and location, so getting it is therefore important.

    Oyama is pronounced [Daisen]. It is a thing that most in Tottori Prefecture and the northern part of Okayama Prefecture and Shimane Prefecture are "not" read "mountain". It is a treasure trove of wild animals and plants. However please note and bear encounters. Spring-Autumn hiking and winter you can enjoy skiing. I think many people living in Western Japan who goes to Daisen ski area. I went to ski for the first time when I was a child was Oyama. You can climb to 900 m above sea level at the Summit Observatory in the sky lifts (lifts for skiing in the winter). Not allowed is the view from the lookout at the Summit included views of yumigahama peninsula, Shimane peninsula, Japan Sea panoramic views in the National Park, so bring one leaves, one stone. Please note that. In addition, attack and enough equipment better to climb out. May 1729 m altitude to climb in the light feeling and in distress. Especially winter Daisen it's harsh environment comparable to the 3000 m peaks.
