Miyajima is very close to Hiroshima, and certainly worth the detour. You can get to the ferry dock either by streetcar or by the JR Train line (handy if you have a Japan Rail pass). There are two ferries - one run by JR, so it is free with the JR Pass. Aside for the oft photographed Torii Gate, there are a number of shrines and temples that are well worth the visit. That, combined with walks in the hills made for a very nice day.
