You can already see the Misen Woods from the ferry: it's the wild part of the mountain, where there are only hiking trails and the Miyajima ropeway.
Hiking your way to the top can be an amazing experience, provided that you're not visiting in Summer (it'd really be too hot, even with the shade from the trees). Bring along a good pair of hiking shoes/boots, at least one bottle of water per person, a few snacks that you can buy at one of the shops on the island, and a camera. Along the way in fact there are tiny shrines, forgotten temples and statues covered with leaves and moss.

Fall is the perfect season to hike the Misen Wild Woods, because of all the amazing colors. Yet you should be careful because the trails can be damp, either from the recent rain or even just because of the forest humidity. Always mind your step and avoid walking on the moss: it's very slippery!

This is a very "Japanese" activity, because most of the tourists choose to stick to the coast. Watching the crowds from above might become your new favorite activity!
