Mt. Tachibana


One of the most famous mountains in Chikuzen with hiking trails popular among people of all ages

Tachibana, one of the famous mountains of Chikuzen, is located on the border of Shingu Town, Hisayama Town, and Higashi Ward, Fukuoka City. It is 367 meters above sea level and visible from the Genkai Sea, so it has long been a landmark for sea and land transportation.
The trail from Tachibana-guchi to the top is about 1,600 m. The gentle slope makes it easy to climb, and many people enjoy it as an easy hiking course.The primeval camphor tree forest that grows wild above the 6th station is a national special natural treasure. The large camphor tree, more than 300 years old, is particularly impressive.

The cherry blossoms in spring and the autumn leaves in fall are wonderful, and the scenery changes with the seasons.
The summit of the mountain offers a spectacular view of the Genkainada Sea, Aijima Island, and the city of Fukuoka City. The fatigue of climbing the mountain will be quickly wiped away. The ruins of Tachibana Castle, built by Otomo Sadanori in the Warring States period, can be seen here, and the remains of an old well and stonewalls can be seen as remnants of the castle's history.
On the second Sunday of April every year, the "Tachibana-yama-biraki" festival is held to celebrate the spring climbing season and pray for safety, attracting a large number of climbers.

The walking time from the Tachibana trailhead parking lot to the summit of the mountain is about 90 minutes.
