広島市 & 宮島
HIROSHIMA & MIYAJIMA
Hiroshima is an attractive, cosmopolitan city that has risen from the ashes of the world's first atomic bomb attack on 6 August 1945. The hypocentre of the explosion is now the Peace Memorial Park, a beautiful expanse of greenery housing monuments to the tragedy.
A ferry ride from Hiroshima, Miyajima Island is well known for its giant vermilion torii gate, ranked as one of Japan's three best views and which at high tide seems to float on the water.
NEARBY: OKUMOSHIMA (RABBIT ISLAND)
A small island located just offshore from the coast of Hiroshima Prefecture is home to over 1,000 rabbits. Many tourists visit to seek good fortune for their family's fertility and blessing of safe childbirth. The island is currently part of a national park and offers a wide variety of things to enjoy such as hot springs, fishing and sampling local delicacies.
During the Edo Period, Iwakuni used to be one the feudal domains of Japan. Best known for its structurally unique Kintaikyo Bridge, this area is particularly attractive during the cherry blossom season in early April. Its former mountain-top castle was reconstructed in the 1960s and overlooks the city 200 metres below.
This stunning, luxury ryokan is the oldest on Miyajima. Its beautiful Japanese-style rooms have been delighting guests, including many prominent Japanese figures (even members of the imperial family), throughout its more than 100 years of history. Being set in the Momijidani (maple valley) park, autumn is really the best time to visit, when the foliage in the forest changes from deep green to vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows.
Rooms in the main building are offered as well as private, detached cottages called hanare. A stay in a hanare is a very special experience as you will enjoy the calm and quiet of a beautiful and secluded space. Some of these also have their own private hot spring baths. Whichever type of room you choose, you will enjoy a delicious kaiseki (Japanese haute cuisine) dinner, served to you in your room in the traditional style.
