We went there a bit later than we expected and regret it... after the visit I'd recommend coming about 3pm, climbing up to the temple by cable or foot and than get to see the shrine and tori about sunset time with the rising water....More

Beside Matsushima (Miyagi) and Amano Hashidate (Kyoto), Miyajima is one of three beautiful sceneries in Japan. The main attraction is Itsukushima shrine, which is a world cultural heritage. But you should not miss Miyajima aquarium, for example. Anyway you can spend a whole day here.

Not to be missed. The island has temples, nature, deer, shopping and food. Take at least half a day if not a full one to explore. Of course you have the famous gate which is surrounded by water when the tide comes in but much...More

If you have a JR pass, you can use this for the ferry to the island. There are lots of unusual shops and eateries and the Tori gate is beautiful. The deers are very tame to the point that they will take anything out of...More

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..
