Miyajima, Hatsukaichi
(4.8/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Take a ferry ride to Miyajima, a scenic island off the coast of Hiroshima known for its Shinto shrine with a traditional torii gate. Stroll along the waterfront promenade, visit the famous shrine, or wander the island's parks and forests, home to wild deer and freely roaming monkeys. The seafront and the surroundings offer many souvenir shops, cafes, and restaurants, but if you're feeling up to something a bit more exciting, you can climb Mount Misen, the highest point on the island known for its rewarding panoramic views.

  • From Hiroshima City you can go by train and then by ferry. Liked us and we stayed to watch the sunset. It is highly recommended.

  • Linda excursion that one takes by ferry with the JR Pass pass from Hiroshima. Beautiful tori and beautiful views of the temple. I liked, this in each one, clear.

  • Visit Hiroshima and not go on the island Miyajima is losing half of the trip. The island has several attractions and a very nice atmosphere. A lot of people say that it is possible to visit the island and Hiroshima attractions in one day, but it's worth separating just a day to Miyajima. A fantastic attraction. Don't forget to evidence the oysters (local speciality) and momiji manju (stuffed dumpling with various flavors)
