Towering at 1,729 meters, Mt. Daisen is the highest peak in the Chugoku region, and is often referred to as “Hoki Fuji'' for its resemblance to the country’s most-famous mountain in Japan, and is designated as Daisen-Oki National Park. Mt. Hoki-daisen is known for its seasonal beauty; spring flowers and summer alpine plants, autumn foliage and winter snow. Mt. Hoki-daisen's Natsuyama Hiking Course is popular among both climbers and hikers, especially in summer, when the roundtrip journey through the peak’s highlands offer a welcome respite from the heat. Visit nearby Daisenji Temple, which has a history of more than 1,300 years, and stop by one of the area's many hot springs, like Yonago Onsen and Kaike Onsen.
