We were recommended to try the Ropeway since we were already on the island. It was a 10 walk from our hotel, Iwaso, slightly uphill. Cannot remember what was the fare. It is a two stage Ropeway. The first leg was in cabin car that...More

Great way to access the mountain. You can hike up and down or ride up and hike down or any combination you like. Hiking is very difficult. The cars are well maintained and gives you great views of the mountains and other islands.

Quick tram ride to the top of Mt Misen for spectacular views of the islands. Great trail through several shrines and ruins.

Our family of 5 caught the ropeway (return trip). Beautiful scenery and you can walk around the top and see the temples etc. We went up in the afternoon in January - not busy at all. We only had one night in Miyajima, but if...More

Two stage cable car that terminates atop of Mount Misen. We walked to start of the rope way via the well sign posted route. The walk up takes you though some pretty immense scenery. Wild deer roaming freely with red, gold and brown autumnal shades...More

I am not as fit as I should be, so I elected to take the cable car to the top of Mt Misen. The ride is about half an hour (including mid-way change), and offers some fine views as you leave sea-level. I suggest buying...More

Offers nice view on the way up to Mt Misen, but they pack the cabin so tightly that it is impossible to enjoy the scenery
