Mount tsukuba is a beautiful mountain located about 20 km north of Tsukuba city and about 18 km northwest of Tsuchiura city.
It has two peaks, and the eastern peak is Nyorai-san (877 meters high)
and the western peak is Nantai-san (871 meters high).
Since ancient times, it has been the object of mountain worship. So there are the shrines of Tskubasan Shrine on both tops of the peaks.
There is the main shrine of Tsukubasan Shrine on the southern
mountainside, and there are the town with some hotels and ryokans
around the shrine.
From here, the cable car to Nantai-san peak leaves. (The station is "Miyawaki".)
From the mountainside located about 2 km northeast of the town, the ropeway to Nyotai-san peak leaves. (The station is "Tsutsujigaoka".)
Run the Joban Expressway, and exit
at Tsuchiura-kita Exit. About 65 km from Tokyo.
About 20 km from there to Miyawaki, about 30 minutes.
