Guide to Miyajima Ropeway

Miyajima Ropeway operates two types of aerial ropeway systems, circulating and funicular in series, which is unique in Japan. As if walking in the sky, you can enjoy spectacular views of the Seto Inland Sea and primeval forest.

Circulating type ropeway
Momijidani Line (Momijidani – Kayatani)

This system operates a number of gondolas for small groups of passengers at fixed intervals. The system is suitable for long-distance transport. The Momijidani Line runs 8-seater gondola carriers (max. 22 units) at about 1-minute intervals.

Funicular type ropeway
Shishiiwa Line (Kayatani – Shishiiwa)

The system operates two large carriers alternately between the mountainside and summit. It is suitable for high-speed transport. The Shishiiwa Line runs 30-seater gondola carriers at 15-minute intervals (shorter intervals during busy hours).
