Hiroshima’s most revitalizing experience is now open. This amazing early morning trek to Mt Futabayama featured by Asageshiki that takes guests to the privileged sacred mountaintop that watches over Hiroshima Castle and the town below, truly a place of immense spiritual energy. The trek begins at 8 AM Hiroshima Toshogu where guests meet their guide and walk along path of red torii gates, similar to the iconic display Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine in Kyoto, stopping to pray at the small hokora shrines dotting the path en route to the summit. Reaching the top is full of both transformational and visual rewards with impossibly beautiful panoramic views of the Seto Inland Sea and Miyajima where you’ll enjoy a special outdoor tea ceremony as you gaze on this breathtaking sight. Sip matcha tea and luxuriate in the wonder and even add on breakfast if you wish for an extra decadent display.
