Island off hiroshima. JR rail pass covers the train and ferry to the island.
We missed the famous red shrine in the water as it was covered in scaffold for repairs. Several temples to visit, try the huge oysters (2 for 500y ), take the...More
Quite simply a must do in Japan.
I went there 5 years ago and thought a second visit may not reward me as it it did on the first visit. But I was wrong, it was just as good second time around.
Take the JR...More
Don’t rush - catch the street car from Hiroshima and then the ferry across to the island. The main part of town was very busy with tourists but there are enough side streets and wonderful temples and shrines dotted around the island. We spent the...More
Took a train from Hiroshima Station to Miyajimaguchi and a short ferry ride to the Itsukushima Shrine and Red Torii gate. Plenty of Shrines and temples to visit, a maple tree park and even a small aquarium. Definitely worth a day's visit. Can start or...More
If you are tolerant of crowds, this is a very pretty setting, with numerous shrines to visit. Waterfront walk is scenic, however just behind it is a maze of commercialization, cheap souvenirs, and tourists. For us, The crammed train ride followed by a crammed boat...More

What a shame Miyajima has turned into one long string of tourists shops. The Miyajima advertised no longer exists. Very distressing cat and owl forests further reinforce this - might be worth a morning visit but overall very disappointing
Just a short train and ferry ride will get you to Miyajima. Famous for the floating tori gate, Isukushima Shrine, Daisho-n Temple and the many traditional Japanese buildings. Watch out for the many deer as they will grab things out of your hands ( my...More

Hi - sorry for delayed response; just noticed this question now. There are lots of things to see and do on Miyajima. Just Google 'Miyajima tourist map" and you'll see a host of useful links. There are many interesting shops to visit, along with deer by the coast, the huge, iconic Torii (during low or high tide - both views are spectacular) in fact the grounds alone on Miyajima are stunning, set against a gorgeous mountainous background, and you can visit a few temples and also go up Mount Misen (if you're lucky with good weather)
