Mount Misen
Mount Misen


At 535 meters, the peak of Mount Misen is the tallest spot on Miyajima Island and offers a panoramic view that includes the Seto Inland Sea and the mountains of Shikoku. At Reika-do, a temple near Shishiiwa Station, there's a reika (soul flame) that has been constantly burning for over 1,200 years as well as a kettle set above the flame. It's said that drinking water from this kettle is effective for treating any illness and promises a joyful life.
