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.
Popularly regarded as one of the three most beautiful places in Japan (the other two are Amanohashidate on the Japan Seacoast and Matsushima in Tohoku), Miyajima is a tiny island located just off the mainland in the Seto Inland Sea near Hiroshima. Miyajima is easily recognized in photos by the huge red torii (gate) which rises out of the ocean and guards the entrance to Itsushima Shrine. Miyajima is a gorgeous island and the perfect place for walks and hikes as it consists of steep, wooded hills. The island also has deer and monkeys which roam the island freely. Before you reserve... If you are staying overnight on Miyajima, please order both dinner and breakfast. All restaurants on Miyajima close around 17:00 (5:00 pm). For more information about Miyajima please see our travel content partner Japan-Guide
Miyajima is easily accessed from Hiroshima.
Good to know: the Torii gate will be under renovation from June 2019 for about 1 year.
