Great View, Little to Do

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... read more

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.

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

Access to the top of Mt.Bizan. By car, walking or lift. The view of Tokushima from the top is worth the time it takes to get there. Unfortunately, there is not much in the way of parks, or walking area

There are multiple ways up Bizan: you can hike up one of the many trials or take the rope way from the Awaordori Kaikan (600 yen for a one-way adult ticket). We hiked up, then took the rope way down. During the Awa O-Dori festival in August, the mountain becomes a flurry of activity, and the line for the rope... More
