Mount Misen

Mount Misen

The mountain grants visitors with spectacular views of the Seto Inland Sea on clear days. It is a valuable location, with a number of Buddhist structures near its peak and primitive plants in its forest. Visitors have a choice of three hiking trails that lead up to the mountain: the Momijidani Course, the Daishoin Course, and the Omoto Course. There is also a ropeway from town as another option to reach the mountain.

It is presumed that Buddhism was first practiced on Mt. Misen by one of Japan’s most famous religious figures, Kobo Daishi (Kukai), founder of the Shingon sect. Several structures from the Daishoin Temple, located at the base of the mountain, can be found near the mountain’s summit. The more prominent structures are the Misen Hondo (Misen Main Hall) and the Reikado (Hall of the Spiritual Flame). The Reikado protects a holy flame, which is said that Kobo Daishi lit during the first worship on the mountain. It has been burning ever since, and was even used to light the “Flame of Peace” in Hiroshima’s Peace Park.
