Mount Bizan, Tokushima

4.0
#1 of 61 in Parks in Tokushima Prefecture
Take the ropeway to the top of Mount Bizan, which, at 280 m (920 ft) , affords panoramic views across the city below. After a short ascent you'll arrive at Bizan garden, and brief stroll leads to the viewing point. Look for the Burmese pagoda, built to honor the soldiers fallen in World War II. On a clear day you can see Awaji Island to the north, and a nighttime visit reveals vibrant illuminations across the peak, as well as the twinkling lights of the cityscape. Stop in the onsite cafe at the top for refreshment.

  • STU48 brough me here. I love it. Hope someday can go here
  • I was a little frustrated with myself only staying one day in Tokushima as I didn't think a day would be enough. I can safely say that my Bizan's views are priceless and are worth it's weight in gold. Absolutely breathtaking.
  • Vantage point lookout here is very good! Is no exaggeration and overlooking the eastern part of Tokushima prefecture. If by car 10 minutes on the Summit and the wide road so no big cars work fine! I say very easily accessible mountain. From the parking lot clean of Observatory away and up the stairs. Plate Observatory indicated the name of a place, it can be real scenery and enjoy a view. 👍 think this place perfect for the couple who

  • It is less than many in the Tokushima Prefecture tourist spots into the top. I think good looks at night in Akita Prefecture Awaji island, Wakayama and Tokushima plain from the Summit.
