Miyajima Mt Misen Trekking Tour

Take the Ohmoto course up Mt Misen and enjoy the beautiful scenery and lush nature along the way.

This plan offers an experience to climb a mountain with a guide living in Miyajima, which is the first climbing tour in Miyajima designed for international travelers. We will take the Ohmoto course which we believe is the best among the Mt. Misen climbing courses.  You can feel nature and enjoy spectacular views along the course. It is approx. 6 km from the ferry terminal to the top of the mountain. We will climb slowly to the altitude of 535 meters in approx. 3 hours. On the trails, there are stone works here and there called chouseki (trail-side stone) which are milestones. An old chouseki has a guardian deity of children (called Jizo) curved on the body.

Miyama Shrine can be found near the summit of Mt. Misen which was built as the back shrine of Itsukushima Shrine around 1200 years ago.  The summit of Mt. Misen has been worshiped as the god's territory. This trail became an entrance path since the shrine was founded 1200 years ago. Along the trails covered with primeval forests, there are a variety of Miyajima's unique plants, naturally-formed huge rocks, strange-shaped rocks, and historical landmarks.  They have been attracting those who visit Mt. Misen.

There are many places of scenic beauty which you may want to take pictures of, and especially, the Seto Inland Sea is picturesque if you look at it from the top of the mountain. Mt. Misen covered with snow and the Seto Inland Sea below the mountain give you another particularly beautiful scenery in winter. In this tour, we will pass by the stone Buddha statues, the Fuji Rock, the Kazefuki Rock, the Daishi Hall, Iwaya Daishi, the Deva Gate, and the observation deck to head for the summit. We will arrive at the summit around 13:00 and then have lunch.

Thereafter, We will take a look around Misen Shrine, Misen Main Hall, and the Holy Fire Hall where an ever-burning fire is burning.  Then, we will head for Shishiiwa Station where the ropeway service is available. After we arrive at Shishiiwa Station, we will take a ropeway around 14:15 and get off at Momijidani Station.
