The ferry that departs Hiroshima Peace Park to Miyajima does not go that late it is a touristy ferry. What you will need to do is catch a train from Hiroshima to Miyajima Guchi station then across the road is the jr line ferry that goes to Miyajima Island.
The train timetables are on
the ferry seems to come every 10 mins or so.
just went there last week it was devine!!
8:25, 9:25, 10:25, 11:25, 12:35, 14:25, 15:25, 16:25
Thank you very much.
The attached link brought up a table with Japaneese titles. I guess these are departures from Miajimauchi, right?
No...schedule is for Hiroshima harbour departure
Here's a ferry time-table for Miyajima-guchi/Miyajima.
From the Wikitravel page (http://wikitravel.org/en/Miyajima) on Miyajima:
Miyajima is an island, so you have to take a ferry to get there. The main ferry terminal on the mainland is Miyajimaguchi (宮島口), which you can reach from JR Hiroshima station either by JR train (¥400, 25 minutes, or ¥570 for a combination ticket with the ferry) or by tram line #2 (¥270, 70 minutes from Hiroshima JR Station). The tram line also passes by the Peace Memorial Park and may thus be more convenient for visitors also touring Hiroshima.
From Miyajimaguchi, JR and Matsudai ferries to Miyajima run up to 10 times an hour. The trip takes 10 minutes and costs ¥170 each way; Japan Rail Pass holders can use the JR ferry for free.
Ferries return to the mainland until midnight, so it is possible stay until after most of the tour groups leave in the evening before returning on a later ferry.
There are also direct connections from Hiroshima Port to Miyajima, running once an hour or so and taking only 23 minutes, but these charge a steep ¥1640 for the privilege.
