Full description
Begin the tour with a ferry ride to Miyajima Island, which offers great views of the Seto Inland Sea. Once on the island, visit the floating Itsukushima Shrine and the oldest temple in Miyajima, Daisho-in, built by one of Japan’s most famous monks. Cherry blossoms in spring add to the magic of these well-known temple sites.

Next, stop for a break at Gallery Miyazato. This local establishment serves up traditional Japanese sweets like the famous Momiji Manju, perfect for a refuel. Momijidani Park and its 200 maple trees await exploring next, and then Mount Misen, the most sacred place in Miyajima. 

Next stop is Rekaido, where you can see the home of the eternal flame, said to have been burning for 1200 years. Finally, you’ll head to the most famous Okonomiyaki restaurant in Miyajima, where you can buy lunch or dinner.
