What you'll do

With a half-day to explore Hiroshima, why not begin with a ferry ride to Miyajima Island, where you’ll be able to visit the famed Itsukushima Shrine and the oldest temple in Miyajima, Daisho-in, built by one of Japan’s most famous monks. Also offering great views of the Seto Inland Sea, be sure to arrive with a fully charged camera. Cherry blossoms in spring and maple leaves in autumn also add to the magic of this famed temple site well worth exploring. Gallery Miyazato serves up traditional Japanese sweet sets that include the ultimate crowd-pleasers: Matcha and the famous Momiji Manju, perfect for an afternoon rest and a refuel in the inner garden.

Where you'll go

With much to explore, Miyajima Island beckons and offers you an opportunity to see the seemingly floating shrine of Itsukushima Shrine. Just ten minutes away is the oldest temple in Miyajima, Daisho-in Temple, built by one of Japan's most famous monks. Momijidani Park and its 200 maple trees await exploring next or perhaps Mount Misen, the ultimate sacred place in Miyajima. Visiting Rekaido, allows all travelers the chance to see the home of the eternal flame, said to have been burning for 1200 years. No trip to Hiroshima is complete without the local take on Okonomiyaki, and with all your adventures helping to work up an appetite, you’ll head to the most famous Okonomiyaki restaurant in Miyajima, where well earned feasting awaits.
