The ropeway is a fantastic (and much easier!) way of getting to the top of Mount Misen, which really is a must do as the views are stunning.

This island is less than 1hr from Hiroshima and you can use your JR rail pass on the train and ferry. The ropeway to Mt Misen is fantastic, the views are incredible. It cost 1800 yen for the return trip or you can walk but...More

Fantastic view on a thrilling ride. View from the top was amazing. Getting to the boarding place may be a challenge, though there is a shuttle bus from the bottom of the hill.

Well worth to pay for the return trip before starting out. We walked to the top of Mt Misen which was well worth the effrt and only took about 20-25 minutes. Lots of steps and not at all arduous.

Miyajima is magical. After time on our own, my husband and I joined our son, daughter-in-law, and 2 year old granddaughter on the ropeway. There is a free shuttle bus, which they used since the path to the station involves steps. We went at 11:30...More

Take the short walk up to the base of the ropeway if you can. It will only take about 20 minutes and there is lots to see on the way although there are a few steps. The ride is actually in two parts with a...More

I thought ¥1000 one way and ¥1800 return was a bit expensive really so we walked down, ride is split into 2 and they cram 30 people into the second part...I'm not joking.
