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 .
Mount Tsukuba Reviews
標高は低いのですが、遮るもののない大展望が得られて通快です！登りに2時間強、下りは……ロープウェイを使いました。もちろん上りに使えば誰でもこの景色を手に入れられますよ！ more »The altitude is low, but it's easy to get a great view that's not blocking! It takes more than two hours to climb, and the descent is over. I used a ropeway. Of course, anyone can get this view if you use it for the uphill!
子供と一緒に登りますので、最近はつつじヶ丘展望台からのルートばっかりです。 1時間半ぐらいで登れます。GWなんかは登山道が渋滞になることが多いです。 more »Because I climb with a child, it is only a route from azalea hill observatory recently. You can climb in about an hour and a half. In GW, mountain trails are often congested.
It's amazing and fascinating...makes me wanna travel
Wonderful scenic view from the top of the mountain.
