Ten minutes by ferry from Miyajima-guchi tram stop and JR station, Miyajima is rated one of three most scenic places in Japan, along with Amanohashidate (north of Kyoto) and Matsushima (near Sendai). Highlights include Itsukushima Shrine, waterborne Otorii Gate, and Mt. Misen, which can be easily hiked or summited via ropeway. Look for the colony of semi-wild monkeys near the ropeway station, but avoid eye contact: monkeys can be very aggressive. Day tickets are available for public transit through the local tourist authority.
