Take a rope way to the top of the mountain for a pretty view of the city....the trip is just as exiting as walking around at the top. There are a few monuments and shrines, but not an incredible amount for a family to do at the summit. Plan on a stroll before returning to the Awa Odori Kaikan at... More

This ropeway station was in the Awa Odori Kai Kan. We went to the Kai Kan to watch a performance of the Awa Odori dance. When we got to the Kai Kan, the performance for that hour had already started but they have one about every hour. So instead of waiting in line for the next performance, we opted to... More

We took cable car to reach Mt. Bizan. On the top of mountain, you can see the city view of Tokushima. It is really beautiful.

A fantastic view. ..and ride up the rope way! Not much you can say apart from the scenery on the way up and the various views from around the top of this famous mountain.

It's worth going to see the dancing Awadori show on the first floor and then taking the cable car up the mountain. Especially on a clear day when you can see the mountains of Shikoku Island. There is supposed to be a cafe or rest area but when I was there every thing was closed for renovation.

We went there in the evening to look at Tokushima "by night". We went there by car with a japanese friend. Not so much more to do up there.

We took the gondola up and down the mountain---it was a 7 minute trip that offered a good view of the city. On top of Mt Bizan, we are able to see the entire cityscape, as well as seas and other islands faraway fading into the distance. It is a great view, but there isn't much to do up there... More

We usually visit Japan in the winter, so we have learned to enjoy the brown-grey turf, and see the parks in our minds eye the way they must be the rest of the year: lush and green, with stunning flowers and shady trees. If your imagination isn't that powerful, save your trip for a better season. However, the view over... More

Mount Bizan (eyebrow mountain !?) is located right at Tokushima city and is the highest point in the city. Most people would take the cable car, or ropeway as most Japanese call it, from the top of the Awaodori Kaikan (Awaodri dancing club). I am driving a car so I drove up the hill through some winding road instead. It... More

Mt bizan is a popular tourist spot in tokushima. It is walking distance from the city center. To reach mt. Bizan, you can either hike, use a car, or ride the cable car. The view from the top (on a clear day/night) is spectacular. There is also a park and a stupa on top. My japanese friend told me that... More
