took the cable car up and walked down, about 2 hours, quite a feat. 3 courses to choose from. too early in the season for the autumn colours. a very busy island. more »
Beautiful view of Hiroshima from the top. The observatory tower will give you a 360 degree view of the island. I enjoyed the hiking which i felt very worth.
Absolutely beautiful view from the top and an equally lovely hike. It is about 20-30 minutes to the top from the exit of the ropeway and there are a ton of stairs to get there. There is plenty of space to rest and take it all in once you make it to the top. The hike up and down is basically stairs the entire way (see photo) so it can be rough at times if you aren't used to walking stairs for 2-3 hours. Make sure you wear good shoes!
