Hiroshima In A Day: Miyajima | Japan Travel Guide

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

In Kyoto, we visited the hillside shrine of 10,000 red gates – Fushimi Inari along with the bamboo forest in Arashiyama via the Hozugawa river cruise. In Kobe, we tasted some of the most tender beef in the world: Kobe Beef. In Hiroshima, we spent time at the national peace memorial museum to learn about the devastating effects of the nuclear bomb dropped at the end of World War Two; as well as visiting the shrine in the sea at Miyajima.

Miyajima Island in Hiroshima Tour! | Japan Video Guide

Miyajima is a small island located in the southwest of Hiroshima city.

The island is most famous for Itsukushima shrine and its giant Torii gate. At high tide, the gate looks like floating on the water. This sight is counted as one of Three views of Japan along with Matsushima in Miyagi, and Amanohashidate in Kyoto.

The shrine is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day trip from Hiroshima to Miyajima (the floating torii!)

Are you ready for an amazing day trip to Miyajima island? We'll show you the amazing floating torii, the Miyajima tide, but also locals and tourists interacting with the Miyajima deer (which is why it's known as Deer island of Japan)!
Yet the Miyajima torii isn't the only amazing thing this island is known for. If you love street food, seafood and oysters, be aware that there's plenty of that for you on Miyajima island! Whether you're planning to spend the night in a traditional ryokan (just like us) or to make it a day trip from Hiroshima, there are so many things to do in Miyajima that will make you fall in love with this tiny, beautiful island off the coast of Japan!

In case you are looking for a detailed article on what to do in Miyajima, you can find it on our Miyajima Japan Guide:

MIYAJIMA JAPAN: A guide to Itsukushima and Hiroshima

A guide to Miyajima Island (actually named Itsukushima) and the city of Hiroshima. We visited Peace Memorial Park, which was a sobering and powerful experience. Miyajima Island might be my favorite place in all of Japan. The roaming deer, the nature, the scenery, the street food - all incredible. And the floating torii gate of Itsukushima Shrine is amazing. The Miyajima ropeway up Mount Misen leads to some of the most beautiful views you'll ever see.

Hiroshima today, Japan tours 2016 (HD 1080p)

Hiroshima today, Japan tours 2016 - Tourist attractions in Hiroshima, Japan - Trip to Hiroshima, Japan
Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide
To most people, Hiroshima means just one thing. The city's name will forever evoke thoughts of 6 August 1945, when Hiroshima became the target of the world's first atomic-bomb attack. Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park is a constant reminder of that day, and it attracts visitors from all over the world. But leafy Hiroshima, with its wide boulevards and laid-back friendliness, is a far from depressing place. Present-day Hiroshima is home to a thriving and internationally minded community, and it's worth spending a couple of nights here to experience the city at its vibrant best.

Atomic Bomb Dome
================
Perhaps the starkest reminder of the destruction visited upon Hiroshima in WWII is the Atomic Bomb Dome. Built by a Czech architect in 1915, it was the Industrial Promotion Hall until the bomb exploded almost directly above it. Everyone inside was killed, but the building was one of very few left standing near the epicentre. A decision was taken after the war to preserve the shell as a memorial.

The building has since become a haunting symbol of the city, and was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1996. Try to wander past in the evening when it's quiet and the propped-up ruins are floodlit.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum
===============================
The main building of Hiroshima's premier museum houses a collection of items salvaged from the aftermath of the atomic bomb. The displays are confronting and personal – ragged clothes, a child's melted lunch box, a watch stopped at 8.15am – and there are some grim photographs. While upsetting, it's a must-see in Hiroshima. The east building presents a history of Hiroshima and the development and destructive power of nuclear weapons.

The museum is undergoing major renovations. The east building will be closed until spring 2016, at which point the main building will close until a 2018 grand reopening. During its closure, some items from the main building will be on display in the east building. Check the website for the latest developments.

Peace Memorial Park
=====================
Hugged by rivers on both sides, Peace Memorial Park is a large, leafy space criss-crossed by walkways and dotted with memorials. Its central feature is the long tree-lined Pond of Peace leading to the cenotaph . This curved concrete monument holds the names of all the known victims of the bomb. Also at the pond is the Flame of Peace , set to burn on until all the world's nuclear weapons are destroyed.

Look through the cenotaph down the pond and you'll see it frames the Flame of Peace and the Atomic Bomb Dome across the river – the park was planned so that these features form a straight line, with the Peace Memorial Museum at its southern end.

Just north of the road through the park is the Children's Peace Monument , inspired by Sadako Sasaki, who was two years old at the time of the atomic bomb. When Sadako developed leukaemia at 11 years of age, she decided to fold 1000 paper cranes. In Japan, the crane is the symbol of longevity and happiness, and she believed if she achieved that target she would recover. She died before reaching her goal, but her classmates folded the rest. A monument was built in 1958. Sadako's story inspired a nationwide spate of paper-crane folding that continues to this day. Surrounding the monument are strings of thousands of colourful paper cranes sent here from school children around the country and all over the world.

Nearby is the Korean Atomic Bomb Victims Memorial . Many Koreans were shipped over to work as slave labourers during WWII, and Koreans accounted for more than one in 10 of those killed by the atomic bomb. Just north of this memorial is the Atomic Bomb Memorial Mound – the ashes of thousands of unclaimed or unidentified victims are interred in a vault below.

There are other monuments and statues throughout the park, and plenty of benches, including along the riverside looking across to the Atomic Bomb Dome, making this a pleasant area to take a break and reflect.

Japan's Island of the Gods, Miyajima | japan-guide.com

Explore Japan's Island of the God's, Miyajima which is famous for its floating gate, Itsukushima Shrine (a UNESCO site), wild deer, and amazing view from the top of Mt. Misen. Miyajima is easily accessible by ferry from Hiroshima.

Japan's Most Beautiful Cycling Route | Shimanami Kaido Travel Guide

Shimanami Kaido is one of Japan's most famous cycling routes connecting the main island Honshu with Shikoku.

Ever since I heard about this bikeway a few months ago, I knew I had to travel there some day to experience it for myself!!

So, I packed up my bags, bought a Shinkansen ticket and took a spontaneous trip down to Onomichi, Hiroshima.

Shimanami Kaido Bikeway runs between Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture and Imabari in Ehime Prefecture, hopping across 6 islands of the Seto Inland Sea.

You can start your journey from either the Hiroshima side or the Ehime side. I started from the Hiroshima side because the views get better and better as you go along towards Ehime.

So, hope you enjoy the new adventure with me and let me know in the comments something you have always wanted to do!! And then MAKE time for it and actually go do it! :D
