The natural scenery is beautiful here and this Ropeway is worth the cost and effort. The walk to get there was lovely.The waterfalls and deer make it extra special.

There are two parts to the ropeway to get you to the top of Mt Misen. The first part is a smaller 6-8 people car and the second is about a 20 people car. I'd go early on a weekday to avoid queues and crowds. We went on a Friday morning around 11am and had a cable car to ourselves on the way up the first part. At the top (Shishiiwa Station) there is a small cafe and toilet at the station. You can also purchase water and snacks here. We also did the hike up to the summit and I'd recommend this. We walked back down via Daishion Temple rather than talking the cable car down. It's a big walk down and many many stairs so I'd only recommend this if you have proper shoes and are relatively fit (bring lots of water). Overall I'd recommend the ropeway and climb to the top - it's definitely worth it!!

The ropeway is a part of one of the two main Miyajima's attractions, Mount Misen hike (the first is of course Itsukushima Shrine). If you feel bold, you can obviously walked up the top of teh mountain, but is could be quite steep and takes several hours. The ropeway makes the journey much easier. The path to the first station is very picturesque and the view from the ropeway is great. However, it does not take you to the very top of Mt Misen. It is 30min ascend from the terminal station (there are 3 stations altogether) to the mountain's summit.

Worth going on this . The ropeway is around 1800 YEN return, you can take the hiking track up to the ropeway station, but its quite time consuming and obviously you must be fit!.
After you arrive at the top ropeway station, takes around 30-40mins to get to the Mt Misen observation hut. Great place for photos on a sunny day.
The views of the Hiroshima city / Bay area and the surrounding bay islands is amazing.
Must do if you got time to go up there. Should take around 2hours to spend at the top of the ropeway and summit.

Strange set up, changing carriages midway. The first part is 6 seater, but then you wait for the car, which probably has 6 seats and 20 standing!

At the top of the rope way you are greeted with signs warning of poisonous snakes and bees. Being from Australia we have no worries about these. However the bees are enormous, and a snake blocked our way to the lookout!

The view was great, but it was just up, look, and back. Very quick!
