Osaka to Miyajima Island via Hiroshima on a Day Trip

I will have a 14 day JR Pass. I would like to visit both Hiroshima and Miyajim Island as a day trip. Is it possible to depart Osaka early morning by train to Hiroshima for sight-seeing then in the early afternoon travel to Miyajima Island by train and ferry to see the sights before returning to Osaka on the same day? I've seen some day tour operators that do it but interested to know if the same can be done using the JR pass.


Hi there,

Yes, you can do this as a day trip from Osaka. It is a bit of a ride using the Shinkansen, so depart early.
