We have JR pass and will do a day trip from Kyoto in early April. We planned to visit Peace park first then to Miyajima island and stay until sunset. I have studied the city tram map and came up with 3 routes:
1) From Hiroshima station to Peace park - tram 2 to Genbaku Dome-mae. Then return to the station to take train to Miyajima-guchi.
2) Instead of return to Hiroshima station, take line 8 to Yokogama and train to Miyajima-guchi
3) Tram directly from Dobashi station to Miyajima
Currently, I tend to go with option #3, it takes longer but avoiding waiting time at train the station, plus for me to find the right track may take longer.
Would like to hear your expert advice of what the best route.
Also, I have one question regarding the fare. I am a bit confused about the 2 fares posted on the website. 150 yen flat fare and 100 yen city on Hakushima line. Which line should I take? the 270 yen is from city to Miyajima-guchi, righ?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
