Mt. Nijou-zan

Also known as “Futakamiyama,” this mountain has become closely associated with the sound of Man-yo (10,000 leaves).
From the sanukite that was gathered at the foot of the mountain to make stone tools, to the tuff (volcanic rock) that was used for structural foundations and sarcophagi, this mountain is a significant archaeological site. What’s more, Emperor Tenmu’s son, Otsu-no-miko (Prince Otsu) is buried on the summit of Odake.
Taishi-cho (Town)’s new year begins with the “first climb of Mt. Nijou-zan”
Those who climb, pray at the Medake summit as the sun rises on a new day of a new year. The commemorative rice scoops distributed there are well known.
