Description of plan

Official guide of Miyajima Misen climbing mountain offers the first-ever mountain hiking experience for foreign visitors in Miyajima.​
We will take "Omote" route which is considered to be the most beautiful spot among the other hiking routes.​ ​

From a ferry landing pier to the top of the mountain is about 6 km. We will slowly climb up 535 m. above sea level for about 3 hours.​ ​
On the way to the top you can see many "chouseki", roadside stones for indicating distances and some old chouseki has ojizo-sama (a statue of god who looks over children and travelers) carved on the stone.​ ​
Close to the peak of the mountain, there is a Miyama Shrine built over 1200 years ago as an "okunomiya" (rear shrine) of Itsukushima Shrine and the peak of the Miyajima mountain is worshiped as a territory of God.​ ​​ ​​ ​
This hiking route was actually an entrance path to the shrine since it was opened 1200 years ago.​ ​

The mountain road surrounded by deep forests with many endemic species, huge and mysterious rocks formed by nature, existing historical sites - all of these attract tourists to the Mount Misen.​ ​
There are many beautiful landscapes you would love to capture on your camera, especially a Seto Inland sea view from the top of the mountain.​ ​
In winter Mount Misen covered in snow and the view of Seto Inland sea below can be exceptionally beautiful.​ ​

You can feel a history and nature of Miyajima over「Omote Course」of Mount Misen hiking.

Omote course of Mount Misen hiking is a route to learn about Miyajima history and culture, and experience its nature as well.​ ​
It is an entrance path to the Miyama Shrine, so let's climb together with a feeling of entering the territory of God.​ ​
A distance between each chouseki is 109 meters, which is counted as "icho" and after one "icho" you will know how long is left to reach your destination.

Kiezuno Reikado (A holy flame that keeps burning and never extinguishes)

At Reikado near the peak of the mountain there is a holy flame that keeps burning over 1200 years and it became known as 「Kiezunohi」which means never extinguishing fire.​ ​
It is used as a source flame for the light of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park
At this Reikado, a hot water boiled in a big kettle is believed to cure all kinds of diseases.​ ​
One cup of this hot water will definitely make you feel relaxed.​ ​

You can choose the route to return freely

Guides suggest optimum Shimoyama route by seasonal highlights, physical condition, weather etc.
The scenery seen from the ropeway is beautiful in autumn leaves.

For people who wish to enjoy downhill walking a little more, "Daishoin course" where you can go back to see the Daishoin is recommended.
It is a course suitable the downward inclination is loose.
* Let's avoid avoiding heavy holidays in May and cold leaves at November's fall Sunday and Sunday at the ropeway.
