Miyajima Ropeway (宮島ロープウェイ)

The Miyajima Ropeway is a ropeway that takes you to the highest mountain in Miyajima, Mt. Misen. There are two ropeway lines, the Momijidani Line and the Shishiiwa Line, and to get to the top of Mt. Misen the one-way trip will take about 13 minutes. On the ropeway, you can enjoy the spectacular view of Miyajima from above. There is also a free shuttle bus stop about a five-minute walk from Itsukushima Shrine, where you can take the shuttle bus to Momijidani Station, the closest ropeway station to the base of the mountain.

Using the Miyajima Ropeway, you can make your way up to the top of Mt. Misen. The ropeway is very popular among tourists because it offers a spectacular view of Miyajima and the Seto Inland Sea from above that cannot be seen when climbing the mountain. It is possible to buy a ticket on the spot when you board the bus, however during seasons when the number of tourists are particularly high, such as October, November, and New Year’s holidays, it is recommended to make a reservation, which can be done up to three months in advance.
