Tsurugi 1955m (剣山) is an easy dayhike with the option of taking a chairlift halfway up in Shikoku. It's also famous for beautiful fall colors.
Location: Tokushima, Shikoku
Elevation Gain: 235m
In fall the mountain gets crowded and it's difficult to find a parking spot, so come early or later in the day.
Chairlift: 1900¥ round trip
Opening times: 9:00-16:30 (8:00 during busy times)
Mid April - End of November
Take the chairlift up and then continue walking up until you get to the Tsurugi Chojo Hutte.
It should take 30-45min to the hut and then it's only a couple more minutes to the actual peak.
The hut also serves food and is a nice stop for a little break.
If you decide to walk all the way it should be an extra 50min for the chairlift section.
You can stay overnight at Tsurugi Chojo Hutte.
There is also a campground just below the upper chairlift station.
