This 2,486m high volcano looks very magnificent, because of its wide-spreading skirt. The volcano is also known as the object of worship of the World-Heritage Nikko Futarasan-jinja Shrine and houses the Chugushi (a shrine built on the middle ground of the Futarasan-Jinja Shrine), on its base and Okumiya (rear shrine), on its top. There is a mountain trail for advanced climber; it takes 3 to 4 hours to climb to the top through this trail extending over about 4km. The climbing is permitted for the period extending from May 5 to October 25 every year. This mountain is ranked in the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains.
