This mountain, a two-hour drive from the Iyo-Komatsu Interchange on the Matsuyama Expressway, has been selected as one of the 300 Famous Japanese Mountains. The peak sits at 1,897 meters above sea level with a plain spread across the peak. The contrast and beauty between the fir and Japanese hemlock and the sun-bleached stumps earns this area's name of Shikoku's Panorama Platform. The local road Kamegamori line, commonly called the UFO Line (Yuho Line), is a beautiful 27 kilometers driving route with Mt Ishizuchi, west Japan's tallest holy mountain, in the background. On clear days you can see as far as the Pacific Ocean and the road has been used for TV commercials. It's a popular mountain for beginner climbers and the summit can be reached in one hour from the trailhead.
