The Ropeway on Mt. Misen on Miyajima

 The ropeway is very safe, but the car is small and it does swing a little bit. If you are claustrophobic or have a fear of heights it may be difficult for you to go up Mt. Misen.


 The ride up is slow, but beautiful once you clear the trees.


 The view from the ropeway station. From this point you have to walk up for about 30 minutes to reach the top of Mt. Misen.


 Almost to the top of the mountain! Just a few more steps!


People leave these stone piers around certain locations to pray that they will have a chance to visit again.
