Mount Tsukuba, Tsukuba

4.1
Hike up Mount Tsukuba and marvel at the views. The mountain features two peaks, Nyotai and Nantai, both reaching a height of 870 m (2,854 ft). Uniquely, the mountain's landscape consists of granite and gabbro, thus its nickname, the "Purple Mountain." One of the oldest shrines in the country sits on the mountainside, housing a deity of harmony and matchmaking for married couples. Expect a moderately challenging climb; alternatively, hop on the cable car that connects the shrine to the peak of Nantai. Take a break at the rotating restaurant, featuring far-reaching views of open fields and the city. To visit Mount Tsukuba and other attractions in Tsukuba, use our Tsukuba attractions planning tool .

  • Advance information gathering also doubles as a plum went to see the Festival. I was worried about events as events in traditional stores or care stores less what purpose did what. Was to induce the cars looking for parking, and went to the shrine, but many so-called tourist destination of such shops to store jumped out at me. Tourism destination management is necessary and I felt. I now want to visit mountaineering purposes.

  • After from Ume Garden, you can get to the Shrine and go to the top of Mount Tsukuba by car are provided free of charge from the Manager. But to rail against the [ai Summit you can choose walk about 3 hours (depends), or take the cable car to pay 1000 yen lbh slightly. On top of the many small restaurants and eating udon hot in warm tea gren complement typical of Japan.. Ouch deliciously amazing. Moreover, already hungry former roads to Ume garden and shrine.

  • We enjoyed the hike up this mountain. It was a 3 hour hike uphill and 1 hour downhill. Make sure you carry water and other basic stuff while treking. If you don't want to hike, there is a train which takes you to the top and back down. The view at the top is splendid! At the top there are a few restaurants and shops to take care of peoples needs. Overall a good place to go!
  • Was there yesterday, climbed it with family and we used the natural side of trail. My 8 year old loved it. Had perfect weather. Came down with cable car so we're not so tired. We drove from Tokyo so can't comment on the bus ride from station to the Jinja/shrine. Will come back.
  • Climb it and get in the onsen in the way back
  • Onsens are bad (tried several), restaurants are slow (and you only have time until 17:00, so you really need to be hurry up), navigation is horrible, no information office on the way, road to the mountain from TX station by bus took about 2 hours, instead of 30 min because of huge traffic jam, and there's no way to jump off from the bus in the middle of the road, and there're no other transportation to the mountain. In the mountain everything was in renovation process. Maybe I wasn't lucky enough but Hakone, for example, much better for roughly the same price for me.
  • It's a very good mountain for clamming.
