Making the travel very easily for tourists. If you have JR pass, this ferry is free. It takes about 10 minutes from Miyajima station to the island. And there are ferries every 15 minutes.

We do have JR Rail pass so no problem in going to the Island. Riding the ferry is quite comfortable. There are lots of food stalls while waiting for the Ferry ride.

An easy way to get to the island, with great views as you approach. Its a very quick trip, so don’t feel compelled to take a seat inside.

Always on time every 10mins, use your Jr pass, packed during the day, we went in the evening as we stayed on the island, so not so many on board

The ferry is as comfortable, inexpensive and regular. Not really a problem getting a seat. Do a look out at the view. Dodge German tourists swinging the big backpacks. I dunno, it’s a ferry don’t get too excited for goodness sake.

Free service if you have a JR Pass, to get to Miyajima island. Only 10 mins from Ferry port to the other side.

This a great way to get to Miyajima. The boat is clean and comfortable and sails frequently. The ride to the island goes right by the torii gate. You only show your passes on the island side.

Cars are taken over on the lower deck of the ferry, so it is possible. Unsure of price
