The island has long been a religious center, due to which a considerable number of temples and sanctuaries have been preserved on it. If you get to Hiroshima, then it is definitely worth a call. A one-way trip takes less than an hour. Sailing to the island, you can see one of the main symbols of Japan - Torii, standing in the water (at high tide). It is advisable to catch a tide, since Torii and the main sanctuary of the island look much better in high water. You need to spend several hours in Miyajima, otherwise you will not even see the main attractions. Worth trying the local fried oysters. Just like in Nara, there are arrogant deer here who hunt by begging, and for lack of a better one they eat paper and plastic.
