Mt. Oe

Mt. Oe is one of Miyazu`s most famous mountains.  It is also a site from which “the sea of clouds” (unkai) can be seen on clear autumn days.  The mountain is also a good place to take a drive on an autumn day to enjoy the fall scenery and changing leaves.

The mountain is also home to the “Tango Oni Museum”.  An Oni is a mythical creature similar to an ogre which often makes an appearance in Japanese folklore and childrens` stories.  There are many Oni legends involving Mt. Oe.  If you`re interested in Japanese folklore and legends, the museum is a perfect place to learn and explore the folklore aspect of Japanese culture.

The mountain also used to have a skiing facility but it is now closed.
