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.
