Travel from Kyoto to miyajima and miyajima to hiroshima


What would be the most efficient way to travel from Kyoto to miyajima? We plan to depart on Monday nov 14, early in the morning. We then overnight in miyajima and the following day Tuesday Nov 15 we travel to Hiroshima. Can we use our JRP for all these routes?


Hi there,

First use the Shinkansen to travel to Hiroshima, from Hiroshima take a local train (about 20min) to Miyajima Guchi, there you can take the JR Ferry to Miyajima.

The route is fully covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
