This symbol of Takahama, is nicknamed “The Mt. Fuji of Wakasa”

This symbol of Takahama, is nicknamed “The Mt. Fuji of Wakasa” because of its beautiful cone shape which is reminiscent of Mt. Fuji. In fact, Mt. Aoba has 2 peaks, the east peak (693 m) and the west peak (692 m), and as it can be seen from almost anywhere in town, the shape and scenery of the mountain varies greatly depending on where you are. Seen from the Takahama area, the sun setting over Mt. Aoba was selected as one of the “Top 100 Sunsets in Japan” and the scenery of this beautiful mountain soaring up along the Japan Sea is a must for anyone visiting Takahama.
