In the Southern end of the city, in the Mt. Tsurugi area, is the sacred Nakoyama highlands. Located just east of Mt. Tsurugi, its wide slopes peek at 1,000 meters, making it the second tallest mountain in Western Japan.  Beginning in April of each year, many bungalows, cottages, and RV parks open and continue operation through the end of November.  One face of the mountain has a famous grass ski area, hosting the Annual World Championships with the longest run stretching 500 meters and descending 62 meters.  There is rental gear, so anyone, from beginners to advanced grass skiers, can enjoy the sport at Nakoyama highlands.
