Wonderful experience. We started the trip at 9:30 from Yonago JR station. It take 55 min by bus (720 yen) to reach Daisenji Temple (terminal station). Then we took maps at the Information Tourist Center (staff speaks English). Climbing the mountain summit takes about three...More
We are staying in Yurihama and took the train and bus to get to Daisen (it’s easier than it sounds). The area before the hike is really nice with a museum, shops and onsen. We hiked up Natsuyama trail and descended down the Motodani Valley...More
