Landmark Religious Site
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.

  • Miyajima is a beautiful island to walk around and shop from . The delicious Moji stuffed with bean paste is a must have. The huge iconic Tori gate is a lovely photo op . Do take the cable car for great views on the top. Try to walk down if possible. It's a one hour walk but very picturesque in the forest on a clear day. It may be slippery so take care. There are many deer on the island below. They are aggressive and want to be fed so watch out if you have food... They will surely want a bite!
  • This is a place I highly recommend. Staying on the island for some nights is definitely a special experience. The island offers great temples, wonderful nature and great hucking trails. And yes, there are Ingress banner missions 😊
  • Lovely island with many shops, and awesome shrines. If you go when is low tide you can walk out to the tori gate! It can be A LOT of people depending when you go. But it well worth a visit. No matter what weather.
  • Definitely worth a day trip from Hiroshima. There is a great hike up the mountain that starts behind the shrine. Goes up 1500 feet or so but the views are really amazing.
  • This place really worth a visit. Doesn't matter it is high or low tide. Really enjoy the natural surrounding with the shrine settings. Beautiful ... ;-)
