Suzugamine Hike - Near Hiroshima

Here is a great hike with spectacular views of Hiroshima City and the ports around the city. There are a few pictures posted below the map.

I think that I would rate this hike as fairly easy. There is not much of an elevation to climb, and it isn't all that steep. I started pretty far away from the mountain, and my route passed right through Shin-Inokuchi train station. So this is a hike that you can get to easily if you don't have a car, or don't want to drive to the hike. There are a lot of trails on this hill with many different routes for you to take. It looks like there is a lot of area to explore on this range just on the outskirts Hiroshima City.

We had to start pretty far away from the trail head as we started the hike early in the morning. The department stores in the area were not open yet, so the 'free' parking was not available. Where we parked along the waterfront, there is a big seawall and a small park. Come down here anytime of the day and you'll find a lot of cars parked here; either people are resting, or just parking so that they can go for a long walk, or run, on the seawall.
