Take a ferry ride to Miyajima, a scenic island off the coast of Hiroshima known for its Shinto shrine with a traditional torii gate. Stroll along the waterfront promenade, visit the famous shrine, or wander the island's parks and forests, home to wild deer and freely roaming monkeys. The seafront and the surroundings offer many souvenir shops, cafes, and restaurants, but if you're feeling up to something a bit more exciting, you can climb Mount Misen, the highest point on the island known for its rewarding panoramic views. Put Miyajima on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hatsukaichi tour itinerary builder .

厳島神社までに行くまでもお土産屋やシカなど見どころがたくさんあります。残念だったのはたくさんの観光客がいて、シカにごみやビニール袋などかまれているところを見てマナーの悪さを感じました。 more »There are many attractions such as souvenir shops and deer even if you go to Itsukushima Shrine. Unfortunately, there were a lot of tourists, and I felt bad manners when I saw deer and plastic bags being bitten.
If you are going to Miyajima I suggest taking your actual camera as I was crying that I only had my phone to take photos with. Everything here is amazing including the wild but friendly deer. more »
