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 visit Mt. Misen and get the most from your holiday in Hatsukaichi, create itinerary details personal to you using our Hatsukaichi road trip planner.
Mt. Misen reviews
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 »
You can either walk or get the ropeway from near Momijidani Park. On the second ropeway, you get the most incredible view of the sea and surrounding islands. It is a beautiful place to walk with so... 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!
