We took a short 10-minute ferry ride to Miyajima on a very hot day. There are two ferry companies that runs and JR pass will allow you to catch the JR ferry for free. We took many beautiful pictures as we approached the island. Once...More

I'm completely stunned by these glowing reviews of Miyajima. There is very little to do on the island and not much scenic beauty to speak of. The shops pale in comparison to those in Kyoto and Tokyo. Trash and debris float in the polluted water...More

Beautiful shrine. Definitely worth going out there when the tide is low and again at night time when the light illuminate the shrine! If you are ti visit you should stay at Miyajima Guesthouse! Best cheap stay on the island :D

Hiroshima is a nice city but, for a tourist and beyond the historic side, it is a place near to Miyajima. The tori, submerged during high tide, is the cover of many touristic brochures all over the world and that's not all. The temple, not...More

We visited on July 6 and the trains and train delays had the greatest impact on our trip there. Miyajima itself and the ferries had limited impact.

Hi Kevin, I would suggest less than half day would be sufficient, please check weather forecast as if it’s raining then other than lunch you may not able to spend time on Miyajima Island
