Mount Misen

Jump to last reply

We (Mom with 19 year old son) are planning our August trip to Japan. We will be spending the night on Miyajima and would like to visit the sites and see the views from Mount Misen. The problem is that I am not a hiker (and not in the best shape/health) so I am not sure about the hike up. I am thinking about taking the Ropeway to the upper station and then walk to the summit. How difficult is the walk from the Ropeway's upper station to the summit? Is there any kind of handle or rope I would be able to hold on for the climb up to the summit? I am then thinking we can then walk down taking the Daisho-in Trail. How is the walk down?

Another option would be to take the Ropeway and let my son climb to the summit but I know he won't want to leave me alone so I am hoping I can find a way to make this work.

Any help on the Ropeway and trails would be greatly appreciated.
