Jp En


Mt Yataka (654m) is one of Okayama's 100 famous mountains. It is located in the central western part of Okayama Prefecture, near Kawakami and the border with Hiroshima Prefecture.

From Iya-Takai (meaning 'extremely high') at the top of the mountain, are 360°-panoramic views of other mountains on the Kibi Plateau as well as islands in the Seto Inland Sea, which can be enjoyed in each season. It is also possible to see as far as Shikoku.

It is fascinating that the various seasonal changes of nature can be enjoyed here at Mt Yataka: azalea stand out in the verdure of spring; hydrangea in summer; red leaves in autumn. At times, a sea of clouds can be observed from the top of the mountain on early mornings from autumn through winter.

Camping sites and bungalows are available for visitors. Mt Yataka is popular with all kinds of people and is good for beginner climbers.
