Tottori Daisen | Countless Volcanic Activity

Daisen is the largest volcanic mountain on the Daisen volcanic belt, a series of mountains in Tottori. Daisen has an elevation of 1,729 meters and is the tallest mountain in the Chugoku region. Daisen formed from the result of countless volcanic activity from 1.8 million years ago. The mountain today is a result of volcanic eruptions during 50,000 to 10,000 years ago that formed on top of Old Daisen. Due to collapses caused by the Great Tottori Earthquake in 2000, Daisen's highest peak Kengamine is prohibited access. However hikers can still access other high peaks such as Misen Peak at 5,608 ft.
