A World Heritage Site on Miyajima Island that you must see on your trip to Japan
Itsukushima Shrine is situated on Miyajima Island, Hiroshima. The shrine and its red torii (gate) is one of the must-see UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Japan. The stunning view during high tide when the shrine and gate appear as if floating on the sea will definitely be instagrammable.
In addition, wild deer, who are regarded as messengers of the Gods, will soothe you when you encounter them on the island.
Enjoy eating local specialties such as oysters and Momiji Manju
Not only viewing the beautiful scenery but also eating local specialties adds to the attraction of Miyajima Island. Oysters are farm-raised in the Hiroshima Bay, right in front of the island, and Hiroshima is the top oyster-producing city in Japan; so you can always have fresh oysters here. Let’s enjoy walking around the island while savoring freshly-grilled oysters and freshly-steamed Momoji Manju (maple leaf shaped confection) that you can purchase on the shopping street!
Take a tram from the central city of Hiroshima to Miyajima Island!
Hiroshima’s municipal trams have been operating for over 100 years. They are the most fun transportation when visiting Miyajima Island. It takes 40 minutes from the central city of Hiroshima to Miyajima. A tram trip while enjoying the city views will surely uplift your spirits!
Since you’ve come all the way to Hiroshima, you must try the local specialty called Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki (savory pancakes with fried noodles inside), as well as visit the Hiroshima Castle and the Atomic Bomb Dome at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, another World Heritage site.

Don’t miss trying Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki!
You must try a Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki when you are in Hiroshima! Please have one at Okonomi-mura, a building with more than 20 famous stalls, or at Okonomiyaki shops around the city! Hiroshima-style Okonimiyaki has fried noodles between the crepe-like thin pancakes along with other savory fillings, which differs from Osaka-style Okonomiyaki that has no noodles in it! Unbelieving filling!
