Hiroshima or Miyajima Island overnight?

My friends and I are going to Hiroshima in July? We are staying two nights in the area. We want to visit Miyajima Island on the 2nd day. Should we stay overnight in Miyajima or just make it a day trip. We are leaving for Kyoto the next day. Thanks for any help.

1. Re: Hiroshima or Miyajima Island overnight?

I would say it kinda depends on your interests. I loved staying overnight on Miyajima because it was quiet and the torii gate was all lit up - quite a change from the day crowds. But if nightlife is your thing, there is NOTHING there...most places close at five or six, as the day business is enough and everybody clears out.

Hiroshima on the other hand has lots of restaurants and places to go in the evening, so if you want activity, I'd say plan to stay there.
