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

Felt so surreal when I was hiking all the way to the top. A bit of foggy which made it more tranquil. Absolutely love it. Get in touch with nature really helps with my mind. I passed by a lot of elders and family with...More

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 visited when there was no snow, but a goat, a quiet ropeway, you can count the number of people on it. The travel was peaceful, legs hanging off the ski lifts, touching the wild flowers below, quiet until the wind blows and you hear...More
