Mt. Mikazuki


Popular hiking course to Mt. Tachibana with a view of Fukuoka City

Mikazuki Mountain is a 272-meter-high mountain located on the border between Fukuoka City and the two towns of Hisayama. The virgin forest of native camphor trees is designated as a national natural monument.
The trail from Mikazuki to Tachibana is close to the urban area and is easy to climb, making it a very popular hiking course for health promotion and excursions. It is loved by people of all ages, from small children to the elderly.
There are almost no trees on the summit, and the 360-degree panoramic view is spectacular. The mountain is also known as "Jinzan (Mt. Jinzan)" because it is said that during the reign of Emperor Tenchi, a camp where soldiers were stationed to prevent invasion from the continent was located here. It commands a panoramic view of Hakata Bay and Fukuoka City, and is crowded on New Year's Day with climbers who come to pray for the first sunrise of the year.
