Mount Bizan, Tokushima

#1 of 61 in Parks in Tokushima Prefecture
Mountain · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Take the ropeway to the top of Mount Bizan, which, at 280 m (920 ft) , affords panoramic views across the city below. After a short ascent you'll arrive at Bizan garden, and brief stroll leads to the viewing point. Look for the Burmese pagoda, built to honor the soldiers fallen in World War II. On a clear day you can see Awaji Island to the north, and a nighttime visit reveals vibrant illuminations across the peak, as well as the twinkling lights of the cityscape. Stop in the onsite cafe at the top for refreshment.

  • STU48 brough me here. I love it. Hope someday can go here
  • I was a little frustrated with myself only staying one day in Tokushima as I didn't think a day would be enough. I can safely say that my Bizan's views are priceless and are worth it's weight in gold. Absolutely breathtaking.
