Climb to the top of Mt. Misen, the highest peak on Miyajima island. Choose from three hiking trails taking different routes to the summit, the longest of which offers the most scenic views and takes a couple of hours to complete. You can also take the ropeway lift to a certain point near the peak, and enjoy the scenery from the air along the way. Trek through primeval forest and see various plants and rock formations, or pay a visit to the observatory on the summit for panoramic views of the sea, and even Hiroshima on a clear day.

  • To be entirely honest we did not make it right to the Top (500 m) and stopped at the 2nd Cablecar Stop. Make sure you check the Time of the Last CableCar. You are NOT allowed to be on the Mtn after...  more »

  • Beautiful view of Hiroshima from the top. The observatory tower will give you a 360 degree view of the island. I enjoyed the hiking which i felt very worth.
  • Absolutely beautiful view from the top and an equally lovely hike. It is about 20-30 minutes to the top from the exit of the ropeway and there are a ton of stairs to get there. There is plenty of space to rest and take it all in once you make it to the top. The hike up and down is basically stairs the entire way (see photo) so it can be rough at times if you aren't used to walking stairs for 2-3 hours. Make sure you wear good shoes!
