Mt. Misen, Miyajima Island (Hiroshima Prefecture)

The hike offers an alternative to the rope way which takes you to the top of Mt. Misen, the highest peak on Miyajima Island. At the top of the mountain there is a good viewing platform from which you can see the Seto Inland Sea and the main land of Japan. The track is far less crowded than the ropeway and gives opportunity to see some of the more wild deer which are less used to human interaction.
