There are two ways to get to the top: walk (it's really difficult) half the way in a cable car and walk the rest. The cable car price 1000 yen one way and return 1800. You have to be very careful, wear suitable shoes as we saw the odd snake, you do not see how fast I went down, jejejejeje. The cable car leaves you halfway and then you go to the top of a fairly steep road and drive down or get the cable cars.
This path can be walked in about two hours from the station, near the top of Mt Misen. It has fantastic views of the inland sea, forests and sanctuaries. Leaving the station, you start walking along a road that leads across a rainforest, where I stumbled upon the first Jizo. These small statuettes represent the protective spirits of the souls of children ve have died before their parents. Occasionally, I found a temple with monks in, the ruins of what was once a temple or a shrine. I also enjoyed the rugged landscape of streams, mountains and I saw some deer. A very interesting tour. At the end of the path is the Daisho-In temple. It closes at five so I had to wait until tomorrow to visit.
Many people who travel to Japan think that in Miyajima there's only a beach. There are more interesting things. Once you get the photos of Miyajima follow the arrows to the funicular or ropeway. You will see the amazing views there. At the second station, enjoy the view and when you exit the station, you will find very friendly monkey families living in the place. A single ticket costs 1000 yen from Miyajima. I recommend going down by foot. There are many points of interest. Enjoy the scenery.
