Mount Senkoji Ropeway


Mt. Senkoji is only 140 meters high, but it does go right down to the sea and is fairly steep, so the ropeway is a good way to get up.


I havent been on to many ropeways that are so urban. On the way up it passes directly over a lot of houses and of course offers nice views.


Its not often you get to look down on a cemetery.


Closer to the top it passes near Senko-ji, the temple the mountain is named after.


From the top there are great views over Onomichi and across the channel to the islands...

  1. I have promised myself another trip to Onomichi and the Shimanami Kaido. Looks like I have to add the ropeway to the list , saw it but did not have time ,after walking the paths between temples.
