    Do if possible in good weather. The view from the top is breathtaking. A bus will take you from seaside to the start of the cable cars (included in the price) through the Deer Park.

    Why 2-stage 纜-car, to 繼 station falls under the large bit in car 廂, 終 bit is the Lion Rock, think mass Peak and then walk for 30 minutes. Long travel or the child's family, 纜 car really is 輕 convenient time choose liquid, gone with the climb over the drive, 瀨 clients sell sea views also reflect the eye Curtain. Torii + Itsukushima Shrine + Park + mass red leaf Valley Mountain, this model courses in house island can be leisurely to-day.

    We walked to the cable car station on a hot summer day. After the two cable car stops (first you go into a small cable car and then in a bigger one) we walked to the top of the mountain. Quite a long ...  more »

    The price of the rope way was 1800 yen for a return ticket or 1000 one way. In the end we decided to walk which took us about an hour up and about 50 minutes down. Great views from the top. There are 3 paths up the mountain, the middle one (which we came down on) is much better than the path from the ropeway, so would suggest that would be the best way to walk up.

    Somewhat pricey for being a cable car ride, but it's a fairly long one and the view is amazing. There's a discount ticket including the ferry ride over to Miyajima and that will save you a few yen, sold at the ferry ticket booth.

    If you are an experienced mountaineer who relishes opportunities to run up hills and has an insufferable 26.2 sticker on the back of your Rav 4 back home than by all means avoid this modern convenience. But if you're like me and want to conserve some energy while bragging you funiculared an island then spend the extra bucks. Besides, it's a grueling 30 minute trudge to the mountain top from the highest station, so you'll earn the shortcut.

    A bit expensive, but wouldn't recommend climbing all the way to Mt Misen unless you know what your doing - especially because of the heat and humidity.

    Take the ropeway to the top of Mount Misen on Miyajima for wonderful views of the island, Hiroshima bay, and the Seto Inland Sea. You'd better take your walking shoes and water though, as there's lots of (hilly) walking to be done for the best views at the observation station

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.
