While you can hike up to the Castle and I hear it’s a scenic hike I recommend you take the rope way to get the full effect

Iwakuni castle is on top of a hill and is framed by trees. A simple, fun and beautiful way to see it is by taking the gondola. The cost round trip is around 500 yen. The ride gives you a phenomenal view of Iwakuni City...More
