Great Stuff to See and Do!
A location so famous that it has appeared in both novels and films
At every angle, this mountain looks like an eyebrow, and so it is known as Bizan in Japanese or Eyebrow Mountain in English. It is so beautiful that there is even a poem in the Manyoshu, the oldest anthology of Japanese poetry, that expresses Mt. Bizan’s charm. The view from the summit is spectacular, and on clear days you can see as far away as Awaji Island and the Kii Peninsula. You can also enjoy the colors unique to each of the four seasons, such as pink cherry blossoms in the spring and crimson leaves in the fall.
We recommend the night view overlooking the streets of Tokushima
The summit of Mt. Bizan is accessible via the Bizan Ropeway, which you can board on the fifth floor of Awa Odori Festival Hall.
From April 1 to October 31, the ropeway runs at night until 21:00, allowing you to ride up the mountain and see the stunning night scenery from the summit. This romantic spot is the perfect place to go on a date or enjoy the sparkling view with friends.
