Mt. Ishizuchi 石鎚山

Climb Ehime's most sacred peak

Mt. Ishizuchi (1,982 m) is one of Japan's seven sacred peaks and the highest mountain in western Japan. The ascent to the Ishizuchi Shrine at the summit affords sweeping views of the Seto Inland Sea. Climbers can take a ropeway to the Joju Route trailhead; from there it takes around three hours to reach the peak. In some sections, there will be a choice between scaling steep rock faces with chains or taking less-demanding bypass trails. An easier route starts from Tsuchigoya Hut (accessible by car) and takes around 2 hours. There is a small lodge near the summit where you can stay to enjoy spectacular views at sunrise.
