Miyajima, Hatsukaichi

4.8
#1 of 2,475 in Nature in Japan
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. Put Miyajima on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hatsukaichi tour itinerary builder .

  • Until the ferry access from JR station, easily accessible. And will not come off if you travel to Hiroshima, I think.

  • Procession was entering the first of all came the Itsukushima Shrine is. Patient than I thought, but this matrix was a surprise. The red one in the "insta Sheen" that can take pictures.

  • Last year is a one-week rail journey. Departure from Osaka on the day Hiroshima travel (f), from Shin-Osaka Shinkansen at Hiroshima Station. From Hiroshima Station on the JR line from Miyajima-guchi (there is also a tram. ) There were two ferry from miyajimaguchi station. We take the JR ferry Palace Island landing. (Where the ferry went down toilets to forgo recommended) shuttle bus runs free of charge if you will ride on the aerial tramway.
