What people are saying:

Miyama is behind Itsukushima Shrine and is a world natural heritage. Walking from the shrine to Mishan, you will pass a delicious commercial street and a forest road with artistic conception. There are a lot of people lining up to take the cable car, but the signs on both sides of the line are fun and not boring. After arriving at the top of the mountain, the viewing platform is very beautiful, allowing visitors to immediately see the beauty of Mishan. After walking through a mountain path that feels ordinary, I am really serious about climbing the mountain. I will pass a few shrines first. Zhu Yuyin is also quite distinctive. At the end, the scenery on the top of the mountain is vast and the mountains and green waters are quiet. It takes a day to visit Mishan and Itsukushima Shrine. The beauty of the two places is completely different, and I feel a kind of peace of mind.

    Well worth the money (Cable Car Fee) and effort

    To be entirely honest we did not make it right to the Top (500 m) and stopped at the 2nd Cablecar Stop. Make sure you check the Time of the Last CableCar. You are NOT allowed to be on the Mtn after it...

    Better be climbed from west to east

    Mt. Misen is prbably the highest peak on Miyajima and makes for a spectacular view, once the strenous hike is completed. We made the "mistake" of planning the ascend from east to west, which proved to...

    great views.

    took the cable car up and walked down, about 2 hours, quite a feat. 3 courses to choose from. too early in the season for the autumn colours. a very busy island.

Additional Information


Mt. Misen is the main peak of Miyajima. The primeval forest in the mountain is designated as a natural monument. It is a forest of coniferous trees with a mixture of some southern plants. Here, the primeval forest plants can be observed in their natural growth state. Visitors can take the cable cars to climb the mountain, and it is wonderful to see Miyajima from the mid-air. Next to the end of the cableway, there is the Lion Rock Observatory, from which visitors can enjoy the beautiful Seto Inland Sea. In addition, there are many shrines and temples on the top of Mt. Misen.
