Mt.Misen Hiking

The attractive of MIYAJIMA is not only Itsukushima shrine but also lots of beautiful nature and great scenery from the top of Mt. Misen. Mt.Misen is about 535 Meters above sea level. It is the highest in this island. How about hiking leading up Mt.Misen which is covered by the virgin forest. You can experience the magnificent nature of Miyajima. There are three trekking trails. On each course, it takes about one and a half to two hours to the top of Mt.Misen. You might see deer along these trails by chance. On the summit you can enjoy the dotted islands floating on the Seto Inland Sea below if the sky is clear.

There is another activity you can enjoy this beautiful scenery of Miyajima. It is Sea Kayak! It depends on the conditions on the day you can paddle under the floating “Torii” gate.
