What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.
Hot springs have a very long history in Japan, and they are an intimate part of Japanese culture. There are over 3,000 "onsen" ,or hot springs, in Japan. Many can be found at the ryokans available on Japanese Guest Houses.
Hiroshima was the first city to be destroyed by an atomic bomb on August 6, 1945. Every year millions of people visit the city to pay their respects to this massive destruction at the Peace Memorial Park and its museum. In stark contrast to its horrific past, Hiroshima is presently a city full of pretty rivers, tree-lined boulevards and attractive museums and art galleries. Located at the west end of the Seto Inland Sea, Hiroshima is a gateway for trips to numerous islands (more than 3,000 islands are located in the Seto Inland Sea, part of which are protected by the Inland Sea National Park) including Miyajima which is home to the world famous red shrine gate which guards Itsukushima Shrine.

If you go...
It is only a 30 minute train ride from JR Hiroshima train station to Miyajima-guchi train station, and then a 10 minute ferry ride to Miyajima. Miyajima is gorgeous and the perfect destination to relax and unwind after you have visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park Museum. The island is full of temples and hiking trails, and it is also an excellent place to spend the night. Click here for ryokan inns on Miyajima
