Fun hike!

This is a short 2-ish hour hike to the top. On a clear day you can see the sea...but we had snow instead! If you're too tired to hike down, take the ropeway!

NB Mt Tsurumi is also listed seperately on Trip Advisor as the Beppu Ropeway - the name of the gondola that takes you up Mt Tsurumi. The gondola goes almost to the peak, then you walk the trails around the top. Views of the ocean and surrounding mountains are terrific. Wear good walking shoes. The trails aren't tough but they...

As you may know, Kyushu rarely snows in winter. Being unable to experience snowy weather may deter you from visiting Kyushu. However, thanks to its altitude, Mt. Tsurumi is usually covered with snow in winter. Stepping out from the ropeway station, you can already feel the chill. When you walk uphill, you can find yourself surrounded by snow. If you... More

it's about a 20 min bus ride to get there, but if its a clear day the views from the top are well worth the effort - I had the cable car to myself when I went, so it certainly wasn't busy!

Although a standard tourist venue, climb to the summit and enjoy a 360 view of the surrounding area. The air is definitely cooler and there is a good breeze. We took the time to sit and listen to the birds -- away from PA music and announcements by the ropeway station.
