We visited Miyajima as a day trip from Hiroshima. We took the JR Sanyo Line to Miyajimaguchi Station which took 25 mins and covered by the JR Pass. From there we took the JR Ferry also covered by JR Pass. There are two ferries so...More

If you are in Hiroshima, it is only logical to allot time to visit Miyajima which I did with the children while the wife went to visit her hair dresser. The children enjoy the visit, taking the cable car ride, having double serving of oysters....More

When factoring in a visit make sure you give yourself a minimum of 3 hours to visit the area. From seeing the Tori,temple,aquarium and many different shops it’s definitely worth it. There are deer throughout the island which don’t seemed fazed by the tourists. A...More

Visited this island in January and had only booked a rickshaw ride ... but there was so much more. Ended up going up in a cable car and walking the 535 metres back down from Mt Misen.

The pleasure of a visit to the island begins with the short, but scenic 10-minutes ferry ride from the mainland. When I say a visit to Miyajima provides many pleasures, I mean cultural, religious (for some people), scenic, enjoyment of the "wild" deer on the...More

Miyajima is an island next to Hiroshima. You can get there using the ferry, and if you have a JR Pass you can use the JR ferry and get there for free. The island is small yet magical: small allies and nature tracks you can...More

A wonderful place to visit - even overnight. Very busy over holiday period, still able to wander, pat the tame deer, do the ropeway and quick walk. Missed the top most hill!

We visited on July 6 and the trains and train delays had the greatest impact on our trip there. Miyajima itself and the ferries had limited impact.

Hi Kevin, I would suggest less than half day would be sufficient, please check weather forecast as if it’s raining then other than lunch you may not able to spend time on Miyajima Island
