Mt. Tsurumi is a 1,374.5 m (4,510 ft) volcano to the west of the city and is recognized as one of Japan’s 300 mountains. It is a popular hike and it can be started either from the seashore or near a ropeway closer to the top. Once at the top, stunning views of Beppu and Oita City can be seen, and, if you’re lucky and it’s a clear day, so can Shikoku and Honshu. The shrines of the seven luck gods can also be visited. If you don’t like to hike, but still want to go to the top, the ropeway can be taken for 1,600円 (roundtrip).
