Mt. Ishizuchi

Mt. Ishizuchi is a sacred peak in Ehime Prefecture on the island of Shikoku. It is the tallest mountain in western Japan (1,982 m) and one of the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains. Used for centuries by ascetics in religious training, the mountain is steeped in tradition. Mt. Ishizuchi is accessible from Saijo City, which is less than two hours by car away from attractions such as Dogo Onsen in Matsuyama and the Shimanami Kaido sea cycling route in Imabari. The main trailhead can be reached by car or bus from Iyo-Saijo Station.

・Tradition
Experience the mountain’s ancient religion. Visit shrines dedicated to the mountain god and meet the ascetics who train their bodies and spirits on the mountainside. Take a step into a place removed from the everyday.

・Adventure
Challenge Ishizuchi’s four climbing chains. These long links of iron have been used by climbers for centuries to scale nearly vertical rock faces. Afraid of heights? Don’t worry, there are trails bypassing the chains.

・Relaxation
Refresh yourself after conquering the mountain with a trip to a local hot spring and dinner at the Asahi Beer Garden in Saijo.
