We had a JR Pass and took a day trip from Hiroshima to Miyajima. I am glad that we did. First of all, JR pass covers the entire journey including boat ride. On the island, the Torii gate is good and we walked around it;...More

A beautiful sight which you will find in all the travel guides. If you have a JR Rail Pass, which I did, it's a short free ferry ride from Hiroshima on a JR Ferry. Note "JR" is on the smoke stack so you don't get...More

JR pass is valid for travel to the island, look for the JR ferry, there are other operators too. From ferry terminal to the Torii site is a short walk along the beach on unpaved road, there are many visitors, the road become very dusty,...More

We arrived by the ferry on a guided tour. As soon as we got off we headed to the gate, passing many deer along the way. Please note, the deer will eat anything you have in your hands... so beware the deer! Plenty of other...More

This is one of the popular tourist spots in Hiroshima. We went day time and can access the shrine on foot. You can get here by JR, 10 mins ferry from miyajiguishi train station.

I was expecting to see one or 2 deer - but there were hundreds! It is a romantic spot to go and easy to access on a quick ferry. Close to Hiroshima so you can do it as a day tour

Hi Peter, I am coordinating a trip for 14 teens and 4 adult chaperones to Hiroshima this July. The travel agency, JTB, says for our group to skip Miyajima Island, but all the reviews say otherwise. We will already have a JR pass so the transportation won't be an extra expense. Do you suggest this for a group of 13 and 14 year old kids from California? They are doing a two week tour and home stay throughout Japan. This will be their last day of the trip before heading home. Thanks for your feedback.

Just show them the JR pass. The ferry itself is inexpensive so they don't make it a big issue to obtain tickets especially since you have a JR pass..
