    Brief but scenic ferry ride to Miyajima Island
    We left Hiroshima and took the ferry to Miyajima Island. The ride was only 10 min but thoroughly enjoyable. Our guide, Hiroko, felt our driver and minivan would better to stay behind. So we were able to take the next ferry out. Like an interisland flight between the neighbor islands of Hawaii, there isn't much time between embarkation and disembarkation.

    Short Ferry Ride to the Miyajima Island
    After getting off from the Tram at the Port, I took the ferry to reach the Miyajima Island. I used my Icoca prepaid card so I don’t know the cost of the ride. It was a short ride and we had the choice to either stay outside and watch the views or stay inside where it was warmer. Very organized both in boarding and disembarking from the ferry. Staff were helpful.

    Smooth way to reach Miyajima island
    The ferry costs ¥200 one way and runs every 15 minutes from 5.50 am till 10.15 pm. It is advisable to stand on the right side of the ferry to get a good view of Torii Gate. You can sit inside AC hall or stand outside or on the top , if you prefer fresh sea breeze. The ride takes 10 minutes to reach the jetty of the Miyajima island. I really enjoyed the ride.

If you have a JR train pass you may use it on the JR Ferry for free transport to Miyajima Island. The trip was around 10 minutes, quick and smooth. We were at the island during November of 2019. During this time they were doing repair work giant torii shrine so it was completely covered up.

We visited the island of Miyajima. Took a train from Hiroshima and then ransferred to the JR ferry for a short ferry ride to the island. The ferry was very comfortable with separate room for the elderly and an open deck on top.

A short walk down the slope from the train station you’ll find the ferry terminal. If you have a J.R. Pass then the cost of the ferry is covered. Make sure you take the one on the right hand side as it’s the J.R. ferry. You’ll be charged if you don’t have a rail pass or take the ferry to the left.
It’s a short 15 minute sail and it’s lovely. You’ll see the Itsukushima Shrine (Red Torii) as you approach Miyajima from starboard (right side as you look to front of ferry).

Fantastic ride across the straight. No hassle if you have JR rail pass. There are two ferry services one of the JR and other with the private company.

We had the JR pass, so this ferry was FREE 🌝. Took the JR to the ferry from the city. Immediately we got off the train, a 100 metres or so further down, you get to the ferry. U can sit outside or inside. Gets you to very close to the shrine.
