Create an itinerary including Mt. Misen
Climb to the top of Mt. Misen, the highest peak on Miyajima island. Choose from three hiking trails taking different routes to the summit, the longest of which offers the most scenic views and takes a couple of hours to complete. You can also take the ropeway lift to a certain point near the peak, and enjoy the scenery from the air along the way. Trek through primeval forest and see various plants and rock formations, or pay a visit to the observatory on the summit for panoramic views of the sea, and even Hiroshima on a clear day. To visit Mt. Misen and get the most from your holiday in Hatsukaichi, create itinerary details personal to you using our Hatsukaichi road trip planner.

  • very interesting adventure, 1st you buy a ticket from your hotel that has offer for the trip transportation( ask about it), you go by a tram then a ferry, have a nice wander on the island then direct yourself immediately to the great mountain Misen.
  • Beautiful view of Hiroshima from the top. The observatory tower will give you a 360 degree view of the island. I enjoyed the hiking which i felt very worth.
