Hiroshima Trip 2018 - Day4 - Iwakuni Part 2 - Iwakuni Castle
After crossing the beautiful Iwakuni Bridge, we proceed to take the ropeway(cable car) to the castle at top of the mountain but not before stopping to eat some ice cream from this shop with 100 different flavours to choose from. The fare for the ropeway is 320 yen for one way and 550 yen for round trip for adult. It is best to buy the package for the bridge crossing fee, ropeway and castle. We did not know about the package and wasted money buying each individual ticket. The ropeway station is only 5 minutes walk from the bridge. The duration of the ropeway is 20 minutes and shorter during peak season. Turn left for better walking trail, the path on the right is hilly and rough. The walking trail on the left. The walking trail on the right. The hike is about 20 minutes walk and we came across a dead small snake. Inside the castle is a museum on every floor. Best view of Iwakuni must be at the top of the castle, a very beautiful scenery and the view of the beautiful Kintaikyo Bridge. Everyone should visit Iwakuni if travel to Hiroshima.
