“You have to do it”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

This is the trip hat you really can't miss if you come to Miyajima. Lovely views from the gondalas and it is a good idea to go up on the ropeway then walk down.

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

I'd recommend the ropeway in Miyajima. It takes you most of the way up the mountain but there is another climb up to the top - maybe 40 minutes to an hour depending on how good you are at walking! There are some beautiful views over the inland sea, and many things to see on the way up such as the eternal flame. We also spoke to many people walking up - good for me to practice my Japanese :-)

“Allow plenty of time”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

Good way to get to the Observatory but allow time to wait for the cable car. Was easy enough to get on the ropeway from Momijidani Station but the ropeway from Kayadani Station (this is the 2nd stage of the ropeway) runs every 15 mins and only one cable car was running each way and only holds 8-10 people. Is a very steep walk up so would encourage railway up and if able walk down

“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

Walked from the ferry up to the ropeway (about 45 minutes) and took the ropeway all the way to the top. Once there, you get fantastic views all around. The summit is another kilometer or so hike which is relatively steep and will give you a good sweat. It was a bit slippery with a thin layer of snow, but really enjoyed the hike in that sort of brisk weather. Met a few deer along the way and took lots of great pictures. Definitely worth the time.

“Very good”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

It goes slow enough for you to take pictures. Enjoyed the ride. There are toilets and coffee area when you get off so you can refresh before the climb.
