“Great views and good hiking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great views over the area. We had quite a long wait though to go up since it was the weekend so it was a bit busier but a great way to get up. There is about another half hour to walk to actual get to the summit. We chose to walk down which was about another hour and a half. If you want to explore, make sure you leave enough time since the ropeway doesn't go right to the summit. Also make sure you go prepared with water, snacks and clothing - remember it is a mountain island and there are signs warning you to be prepared for changes to the weather as well as to be careful of snakes and hornets.

“What a breathtaking view!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

The view you get from taking the cable car up to the mountain is just breathtaking! This was my high point during our trip through Japan! I will never forget the view we got!! I can only recommend it and would do it over and over again!

“enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We enjoyed this in the morning after our overnight stay before getting the ferry back to Hiroshima. I had not realised that after the top of the ropeway there was a fair bit of hiking to reach the very top and we did not have enough time. The view was still lovely from the top of the ropeway and worth doing. If you want to get to the very top, I think it would be about 20-30 mins from the top of the ropeway, and allow for walking back too.

“Nice view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Very nice view, a little more information for tourists in English would have been nice.
I did not always feel totally secure about the safety, but i survieved, so it must have been okay.

“up up and away...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This cable car gives you great views and access to the mountain top. We met some people who hiked up, which is cool, but once we arrived, there was still PLENTY of hiking.
