Mt.Houkyou is a Protected content mountain located in Tsukuba and Tsuchiura cities, Ibaraki Prefecture. From the summit, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Mt.Fuji, Mt.Tsukuba, Nikko Mts, Mt.Akagi, Lake Kasumigaura, and the Pacific Ocean.

In spring, the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, and the mountain trail is dyed pink. There are several hiking trails, all of which are relatively well-maintained and easy to climb for beginners. It takes about 2.5 to 3 hours to reach the summit.

The view from the summit is simply breathtaking. In particular, the combination of cherry blossoms and Mt.Fuji in spring is the best. You can also see the vast expanse of Lake Kasumigaura, which gives you a sense of openness.
