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 walk in...More

Once you take the ropeway there is still a good short hike to do to reach the summit and it opens up the option to walk back down. There is not a particularly fantastic view from this ropeway but the ride up is pleasant.

OK so this attraction will be a little weather dependant, but a bright sunny day with good visibility is ideal. For those not too enamoured of the climb up via a good hike, this provides a welcome alternative. The Ropeway is divided into two sections,...More

Excellent views from the ropeway that takes you to Mt Misen. The price is steep (2000 yen return) but for those who dont want to hike 40 mins it is a good option.

This was a pretty standard cable car. But it is the best way to cut off about 70 minutes from your hike to the top of Mt. Misen do I felt like it was worth it.

Unfortunately the ropeway is currently closed for maintenance . It is a probably a good idea for those who might find the steep hike a challenge. It will save much sweat and time.

The ropeway is in 2 stages and takes you to the top of the highest mountain in Miyajima with 360 degree panoramic views. I really recommend this

The Miyajima ropeway was worth the money spent for convenience sake. There was no lines when I went and the workers seemed very organised. Great for views of the forests in the mountain too!

We went up as soon as it opened and there were no lines or hassle. The ropeway offered some great views. It does get a lot busier but I doubt the waits are ever very long.

Very convenient way to get towards the top of Miyajima Island, especially if your fitness level is not up to walking an extra couple of hours. The views from the gondolas alone are worthwhile. The final stop is Shishiiwa Station, 430 metres above sea level....More
