Miyajima Ropeway, Hatsukaichi

4.0
Take in the scenery during a trip on Miyajima Ropeway, a cable car that heads up to the summit of a mountain. The two main lines offer impressive views during the ascent to the mountain's peak, 535 m (1,744 ft) above sea level. The first line covers a distance of 1.1 km (0.7 mi), while the second takes you up 0.5 km (0.3 mi) to the summit. The ride up provides an interesting and exhilarating experience, with unobstructed views of the island's coast and the mountainside scenery.

  • Quick tram ride to the top of Mt Misen for spectacular views of the islands. Great trail through several shrines and ruins.  more »
  • Miyajima is an island, so at the end of the rope weigh Itsukushima Shrine and another direction of the sea view. See islands of Seto Inland Sea. I think it's a valuable point visible on the Seto Inland Sea. But island with views of Hiroshima town. Hiroshima Electric Railway day buy a boat ticket and ride rope Wei at a discount. It was the scenery is worth the ride.

Where to stay in Hatsukaichi

With its historic temples and shrines, scenic coastal areas, and wealth of inland trekking potential, Hatsukaichi has a number of accommodations to complement the vast array available in neighboring Hiroshima. Many visitors do decide to stay in the larger city to the east, but if you're particularly set on staying in Hatsukaichi, you won't be disappointed by the choice. Look close to the sea for the more upmarket rooms offering views of the bay, and on some of the narrower side streets for budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The same goes for the island just offshore. With its shrine and history, many choose to stay on Itsukushima, close to the Miyajima shrine.
