Hi there,

Here a little breakdown of ticket prices:

Kansai Airport --> Uno ¥ 9,130
Uno --> Miyajimaguchi ¥ 11,520
Miyajimaguchi ferry ¥ 170
Miyajima --> Hiroshima ¥ 570
Hiroshima --> Kyoto ¥ 10,990

This adds up to ¥ 32,380. I must say that it is a little hard to find the best option here!
You could make some good savings if you could make the above itinerary with a 7-day JR Pass (¥ 28.300).
I think that for now the best way is to buy train tickets as you travel.

In case you do get a JR pass, the ferry to Miyajima is covered but the other ferries and subway in Kyoto unfortunately not. In Kyoto I would recommend buying a all day bus pass which is just 500 yen :)

Enjoy Japan!
