Peak of Mount Tsukuba

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on December 3, 2014

Mount Tsukuba in Ibaraki Prefecture north of Tokyo is one of the most famous and most accessible mountains in Japan. There are four routes up to to either of the two peaks, two hiking trails, rope way and a cable car. I decided to try out the ropeway from the Tsutsujigaoka Station on about halfway up the mountain, arriving just in time for the cloudy and cold sunset. The mountain itself peaks at 877m and on clear days it is said that you can see the Tokyo skyline far to the south. Although not quite as clear when I visited, It was interesting to see the entire Kanto plain laid out in front of the mountain, flat as a tabletop!
