You can catch a ropeway to the top of the mountain, but the hike up isn't too difficult, and has lots of great views of surrounds. The peak has very interesting rocks and it's fun to see the deer making it all the way up as well!

Miyajima is a short ferry ride away from the clutter of the greater Hiroshima area. Like most natural spots in Japan, it's a bit over-engineered. And it can get crowded on weekends and holidays. But in Spring, during the cherry blossom season and in the autumn when the leaves change, this is one of the places I frequent to recharge my batteries. The climb to the top of Misen is a a bit challenging if you've stopped at the Momojidani Park cafe for some oysters and a beer. (Sometimes I just can't hold back until I come back down.)
But go for it and enjoy the view.

We went up in the rope car and walked down. Paths were easy to use. Great walk. Only disappointment was platform at the top was tatty. Could do with a lick of paint

It's not a huge distance up to Mount Misen, just rather steep. There are steps most of the way. It took us about an hour to get up there. Some people struggled but if you're reasonably fit it's no problem. We stopped off at the Daishoin shrine on the way up, and got the ropeway back down, which is good fun. A really nice walk with great views. Get a coffee at the Miyajima Coffee shop in the shopping street when you get back down - great cakes too!

Cable car (rope way in Japan) provided great views and ran very smoothly. At the top, you can hike up further to the observatory - its a pretty arduous hike, but worth it for the panoramic views - we even saw a submarine heading out to sea!
