Mount Tsurugi

Mt. Tsurugi: Enjoy Trekking West Japan’s 2nd Highest Peak!
At 1,995 meters above sea level, it’s the highest place in Tokushima prefecture. And even in West Japan, Mt. Tsurugi is only second to Mt. Ishizuchi.
Hearing this you may think that it raises the hurdle quite high for mountain climbing, but as a lift is available to the halfway point of the trail, it’s an easy climb even for those who come with children, and popular as an ideal trekking course.
You can climb without taking the lift, too, but for beginners I recommend taking it easy and riding the lift, which is located in Higashiiya, Miyoshi city (quite deep in the mountains). You can get on the lift at Minokoshi station.
