A visit To Miyajima Island Hiroshima :
On day 2 of my visit to Hiroshima,i took a took a 30 min boat ride from my hotel ( Grand Prince Hotel ) to Miyajima Island.There are deers everywhere and they would come up to you for food so better watch what you hold or else they’ll eat it from you😅.On the island there is a beautiful shrine called the Itsukushima shrine meaning the island of worship and from ancient times the island itself was worshiped as a god.
The centuries-old Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima is the source of both the island's fame and its name. Formally named Itsukushima, the island is more popularly known as "Miyajima", literally "shrine island" in Japanese, thanks to its star attraction. The shrine is known worldwide for its iconic "floating" torii gate. #wintergetaway
On the 2nd day of Hiroshima, you can feel the cruelty of war and enjoy the fusion of man and nature.
Hiroshima is Japan's largest city in China, and its international reputation is unquestionable. After all, Hiroshima and Nagasaki of Japan are all The only two cities in the world that have suffered from atomic bombs!
Compared to Nagasaki, Hiroshima is more modern and developed, and foreign tourists and even residents are surprisingly large. I have not seen so many foreign tourists even in Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan!
I stayed in Hiroshima for four days. In addition to two days of eating, drinking and shopping, I personally feel that you can arrange two days to play Hiroshima!
Day 1 Hiroshima City Explosion Memorial Hall - Hiroshima City
Day 2 Miyajima Day Tour
Memorial Hall is really worth visiting, you can see many of the record photos at the time, feel the nuclear war to humans The disaster and pain brought by many foreigners saw tears in the museum!
is another place other than Nara, which is occupied by the deer. If you take a boat from Hiroshima for less than ten minutes, you can consider staying on Miyajima for one night and feel the fusion of people and nature! The famous Sea Bird House has been undergoing a one-year maintenance since mid-June, so the big bird house that is now seen is "packing the legs". It may take a while to wrap the whole body! However, this does not affect the Yancheng Shrine's face value. I personally think that the Yanshima Shrine is one of the best Japanese shrines I have ever seen in Japan, and I don't want to sell tickets to enter! (Japanese shrines need tickets to enter very little)
Traffic information: Take JR to Hiroshima City, transfer to the ground train to all the attractions in Hiroshima! Miyajima needs to take JR to Miyajimaguchi and transfer to the ferry! The traffic on Miyajima is basically on foot, and you can also take a rickshaw! !
Travel Tips: There are many hotels on Miyajima. When the weather is good, you can watch the bird's nest sunset in Miyajima! In addition, Hiroshima's central commercial street is really very good to visit, drugstores are super, basically one every five meters, things are particularly complete! Friends who like to buy and buy can shop in Hiroshima!
