Had an amazing day out in the island. Lots of tasty food stalls and deers chasing you around try to steal your food.

Make your way by ferry to this beautiful island and a view of a large Tori that looks like it floats on water at high tide. The view is breath taking alone. Once you're there, you are immediately greeting by some VERY friends deer, who are very humanized due to all of the people the island attracts, but be careful with any snacks or foods you carry in your bag, they are not shy when it comes to grabbing and biting to get that. Take a walk along the island and you'll find many small shops and a temple, you will also come along a rope way that would take you to the top of the mountain that is also accessible by walking. It's a bit of a hike going up, but really fun hiking down. Be careful not to slip and fall, but it's worth the trek if you have the time. Best way to see the tori is to go by boat, which can be booked by one of the local tour groups that you can purchase when you're on the island. The tour guides are really friendly (just like all the people in Japan), and many speak some English. If you're lucky, you may even be there when they pop some fireworks! Such a great experience. FYI if you happen to have a JR pass, this ferry is included in that pass, so it's free!!

This is a small island off the coast of Japan less than an hour from Hiroshima. It is most famous for its giant torii gate, which at high tide seems to float on the water. The island has a ferry boat to get there from the mainland. It is very popular and known as the Shrine Island for the main Itskushima shrine. There are lots of shops, restaurants and places to stay over night. They also have deer that roam free and are considered sacred and will take your food if given a chance. The island has numerous hiking trails with nice views. It does get busy especially in cherry blossom season but it is still worth a visit.

広島駅から山陽本線で25分の「宮島口駅」、路面電車だと広島駅から60分の「宮島駅」が最寄り駅です。そこからフェリーに乗って宮島へ渡ると厳島神社が見えてきます。
満潮時と干潮時では神社の様子が変わり、潮が大きく引く時期は干潮時に大鳥居まで歩いて行けます。
神社はとても美しく、回廊で結ばれた社殿を歩いて観覧します。島には鹿が沢山いて、とてもかわいいですが、神の使いですので邪険にしてはいけません。門前町は名物の紅葉饅頭や焼き牡蠣などのグルメポイントです。
