The symbol of Tokushima City

No visit to Tokushima City would be complete without a visit to Mt. Bizan, as this 290-meter-tall mountain is a defining element of the city landscape.

The Japanese character for "eyebrow" is in the mountain's name as it's elongated horizontal shape resembles one. The mountain was even one of the locations for the filming of the 2007 Japanese movie "Bizan.”

Once at the summit, you'll be rewarded with terrific views of Tokushima City below. When the weather is clear, you may even see Awaji Island and Wakayama Prefecture's Kii Mountain Range far out in the distance across the water.

Mayuhana-kyo

The kaleidoscopic "Mayuhana-kyo," which incorporates over 4,000 LEDs, is a tourist site that illustrates Tokushima's connection to the LED industry. There is also a Burmese pagoda that is a monument honoring fallen Japanese soldiers from World War II.
