For taking “Miyajima Ropeway”

From Miyajima Pier To Momijidani Station

by walking  approx. 25-30 min.
💡 behind “Itsukushima Shrine”

Please search “Momijidani Station”
on Google Map.

From my point of view 🙂

Miyajima Island is now well known for “Itsukushima Shrine.”  If you have plan to visit there, strongly recommended to climb up to “Mt. Misen” to see the view from the summit if the weather is nice.

Riding from “Momijidani” Station, if you use the cable car, you will arrive “Shishiiwa” Station.  From there, quite some more up and down paths are expected to the summit.  Please wear the comfortable shoes for walking and nice to have a bottle of water with you.

Great views are guaranteed!!

By the way, “Momiji-dani” means “autumn leaves/Japanese Maples” and “valley.”  You can also enjoy the color of leaves if visiting around mid-November.

Thank you for reading my report. 🙂
