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.

Mt. Misen Reviews
宮島口から見る弥山は、急峻で独特の山容をしている。瀬戸内海の航海の目印になった弥山はやはり眺望が良い。ロープウェイ駅からの道は整備されていて歩きやすい。山頂の巨石群れも素晴らしい。 more »Seen from Miyajimaguchi, Yayama has a steep and unique mountain range. The view of Yayama, which became a landmark of the voyage of the Seto Inland Sea, is still good. The road from the ropeway station is well maintained and easy to walk. The huge stone flock at the top of the mountain is also wonderful.
Montez par le téléphérique pour admirer au moins l'observatoire au sommet. Mais mieux monter en 30 minutes au sommet du mont misen pour une vue à 360 magnifique. C'est un chemin parsemé de marches mai... more »Climb by cable car to admire at least the observatory at the top. But better climb in 30 minutes to the top of Mount Misen for a magnificent 360 view. It's a path dotted with steps but be well-heeled (in basketball). Take water and food especially if you then walk down. Count 1h 15 and cf is not essential unless you have time. Choose the path of the middle that arrives at the temple
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!
