Mt. Daisen has an altitude of 1729 meters, and while very different from the volcanic volcano, it is called the Mt. Fuji of the West. With a large circular summit of about 840 meters high with a steep 30° inclination near the top, Mt. Daisen is comprised of ancient stratovolcanoes and newer eruptions. The south and north sides of the mountain consist of cliffs that were formed due to later small explosions and severe erosion in those areas. These depict and show a steep mountain and are in contrast to the inclined western landscape and side.
At Northern foot of Mt. Daisen lies an untouched piece of nature that consists of vast grasslands and rural landscapes that has remained throughout time.
