Miyajima Island is a delightful island just 10 minutes by ferry from Hiroshima. Although we had quite inclement weather, it was still a great day. The autumn colours were exquisite & the many gardens were just beautiful. Also not to miss is a restaurant over...More

This whole place was amazing. Must visit if staying in Kyoto or closer like Hiroshima or osaka. Deer roam freely. The mountain is stunning with a ropeline to take you up with spectacular views. The floating tori shrine is stunning and if you like beer...More

Apparently the Diamond Princess got the parking spot at the Hiroshima Port, but that actually worked out better for us. By docking at Itsukaichi we were between Peace Park and Miyajima Island. 30 minutes to the Peace Park via Hiroden, 20 minutes to the ferry...More

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
