Japan travel guide to what to do and eat in Miyajima, Hiroshima in a day!

Hiroshima is near the bottom of the main island Honshu and a must visit when coming to Hiroshima is the island Itsukushima, more popularly known as Miyajima. It’s one of Japan’s top 3 scenic sights, most famous for its giant torii gate, which at high tide seems to float on the water.

Miyajima island is also a great place for a day trip from the Kansai region like Kyoto and Osaka but I would recommend staying in Hiroshima for a few days to explore Hiroshima city and another day for Miyajima island.

I started my trip off at Hiroshima station and took a 25 minute train ride to JR Miyajima-guchi station.

From there it’s less than a 5 minute walk to the ferry terminal where you will take a 10 minute ferry ride to go to Miyajima island.

Places visited:
Itsukushima Shrine and the “floating tori gate”
Omotesando Shopping Street
Momiji Bridge
Daisho-in Temple
Senjokaku and the 5 story Pagoda

    Definitely a highlight of my trip to Japan. Would love to go back & spend a couple of nights in one of the island's ryokans & take more time to explore the whole beautiful island.
