Mount Daisen is near Yonago, there are many temples, shrines and other attractions around the mount. Tourist shuttles running between the JR station and those attractions. Better get a 1-day tourist pass for the tourist shuttle.

We started our driving from Oku Daisen to Kagamiganari to Kagikake Toge to Masumizu Kogen to Daisenji temple to Katori Kogen. We enjoyed beautiful mountain streams, the beech forests, the panoramic view of the cities... More
