The Entire Mountain is a National Monument! Enjoy a 360° Panoramic View from the 580m Summit!
Mt. Omuro, or Omuroyama, is a beautiful mountain with a unique shape like that of a bowl with chopsticks resting on its side. The mountain was formed during an eruption about 4,000 years ago. There is a lift that goes up to the summit at about 1,000 meters, where you’ll find a promenade where you can enjoy a beautiful 360° panoramic view. Visitors can also enjoy taking part in archery down in the 70-meter-deep crater.
Climbing the mountain on foot is prohibited for safety reasons.
The color of the mountain changes with the seasons, from fresh greenery to autumn leaves to grey after the mountain is burned.
You can purchase soft-serve ice cream, snacks, and souvenirs at the summit.
