Well developed trail to beautiful viewing point. I started early in the morning, and there were no other people on the trail. Very tranquil and scenic. Highly recommended.

After getting off the ropeway, it takes 30 minutes up to the mountain top and then 70 minutes down to Daishoin Temple. This course could be the best course among 3 as you can step down the steps in many places and see classic temples,...More

My recommendation: do the mountain first before the main tourist sights near the coast, get the tough hiking out of the way. Get the cable car up and then follow one of the hiking trails all the way down. Be warned - the 1km walk...More

We walked up Mt Misen on the Daisho-in trail, which was beautiful and uncrowded. It’s a 90 minute stair climbing exercise, which provided excellent views of the bay and of the O-Torii. The top of Mt Misen was crowded, with most visitors making it up...More

A stiff climb up from next to the Daoshi in temple complex and about 90 mins later you are enjoying 360 degree views all around. The descent via the gardens in spectacular autumn clothing made for a great morning out.

The climb just seemed to go on and on. But the lookout over the inland sea and Hiroshima was well worth all the energy spent. Mind you if the day is overcast I would think twice about completing this climb as it is the view...More

From the top of the ropeway we climbed about 30 minutes to the top. I thought it was a bit strenuous but I saw women climbing in sweaters and heels while I was a sweaty mess. There are lovely views from the top. We walked...More

Hi Koral88 Even if you take the ropeway there's still a considerable distance to walk to get to the top of Mt. Misen from the platform where the ropeway ends. It's a lovely uphill trail and the views are worth it. We rode... More

Just an FYI on the climb. There is a lot of uneven type steps but still very safe. Just a variety of step types is all. It took me & my buddy around 1 - 2 hours. You'll be stopping a lot on the way to take pictures... More
