Mt. Daisen is 1,729 meters above sea level and the highest peak in the Chugoku region, located in Daisen-Oki National Park. It was chosen as one of the best 100 mountains in Japan. The mountain has historically been regarded and worshiped as a sacred mountain and has earned the nickname 'Houki Fuji' (Fuji of the Houki area) due to its resemblance to Mt. Fuji.
