daytrip to hiroshima and Miyajima  (17 Answers)

we plan to do a daytrip by JR train from Kyoto to Hiroshima arriving there at 10.00am
1)is it wise to walk to Peace Park or take the tram?
2)how much time the park will take (without a visit to the museum)?
3)is there a tram line near the park for the port (Miyajima-guchi) to catch the ferry to Miyajima? which tram line? what's the ticket cost?
4)should we buy One-day pass from the tourist office (is it at ¥600?) as we may need at least 3 tickets in total for trams? (1 to the park, 1 to the port, 1 back to the station)
5)will it be easier to do the Miyajima first and then the Peace Park? if so which tram lines should we take?

a strange costume - what is it ?  (10 Answers)

I hope this is considdered a travelrelated question ! I saw this Person standing for almost 2 hours in the same place: he/she did not move, did not beg for Money, was always looking in the same direction and had a costume that I never saw somewhere else in Japan. These photos are taken in Miyajima, a holy Island, so maybe it has to do with religion

Anyone in Hiroshima to share experiences?  (4 Answers)

Hi all,

I am Johnnie, a 25 year old student from the Netherlands. I study Cultural Geography at the University of Groningen.

I am in Hiroshima for 4 weeks right now as a tourist, student and researcher. I'm here on my own, mainly to explore the range of tourists' experiences, feelings and emotions while visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and vicinity. As a tourist, I'll also be experiencing the encounters at the Peace Memorial sites myself.

The aim of my study is to understand tourists’ experiences in Hiroshima, as well as their potential changed meanings regarding war, peace and nuclear weapons after touring Hiroshima.

While I'm here, I would very much like to get in contact with other tourists and share some of our experiences. That would help me a lot to better understand the impact of such a visit. Other than that, as a tourist, some company and socializing a bit would do me good while I'm here for 4 weeks.

If anyone is in Hiroshima in February and would like to meet, let me know :) . Or e-mail me at [email]. Hope to talk to you soon!

cheap hotel and sightseeing...  (8 Answers)

Hello,

I will be in Hiroshima coming January and staying 2 nights.

I dont have a clue what to do there. Of course, first of all I wanna see the history of Hiroshima. I am not into museums, but if there is a good one about history of Hiroshima, then I would like to go.

I dont know how big the place is and how to get around there. We will be two persons.
How can I make a plan of what to do there and how to find out how to get there? We do not speak japanese.

Can someone help me in telling me in which areas we should get a hotel (and where to book it online) and where to go?

thanks and hoping to hear back soon. I believe I have to book a hotel room quick.

Overnight stopover -- what can I see?  (5 Answers)

I will have a stopover at HIJ airport soon on a weekday night, arriving at 2010 (have to do customs clearance) and then leaving at 0920 the next morning. Both flights are international and it's not possible to do online check-in.

I'm looking at staying at a hostel near JR Hiroshima station, and taking the airport shuttle to get there and then back to the airport the next morning, which should take about 1 hour each way.

Or, is there any non-smoking place (McDonald's or Internet cafe) where I could spend the night? Capsule hotel would also be an interesting option, if anyone knows of any that take female guests.

Will I be able to do any sightseeing at all? Or, at least try the local okonomiyaki? I'm just trying not to make it a trip where I see nothing apart from the airport, accommodation, and airport transport!

Day itinerary in Hiroshima/Miyajima  (6 Answers)

Hi,

I'm planning a day trip from Kyoto to Hiroshima and then going to Miyajima Island.

As my time will be tight, hoping to arrive by 10:30am and must leave on the 19:51 train, can anyone help with how best I should spend my time at these places? My initial thoughts are:

Hiroshima
---------
Peace Park
A-Bomb Dome
Hiroshima Castle
Museum

On Miyajima
-----------
Itsukushima Shrine
Take ropeway to the top of Misen Mountain

Having looked into Miyajima further, it seems there's more to do on it than I originally thought.

What should be seen and what can be left out?

How long should I aim to spend at each place?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

tram from city center to Prince Hotel?

hi all you knowlegeble folks,

there's a 4-day meeting going on in Prince Hotel (near the Hiroshima port) that i need to attend, but staying in the grand Prince hotel itself is out of budget. :( heard the views were superb.

plus, most budget friendly hostels/guest houses are located near the city center.

is there a tram line/subway/bus that goes from city center all the way to the hotel or its proximity that i can catch to and fro? (perhaps the first and last tram timing?)

i've tried various searches and haven't been able to pull this info off the WWW.
so any help/info is very appreciated. :)

TIA

Is it worth a winter visit?  (2 Answers)

I am coming to Japan in about a week. We are flying into Osaka and out of Narita. We do not have that much time (about 9 days), but I would love to see Hiroshima. Is it worth it to make the day trip to Hiroshima? I would take the first possible train there and the last one back.

How long does the train take approximately?
Can I see Mijama in the winter? Is it worht it?

I would probably go to Mijama first and then go to the Peace Park afterwards.
Let me know what you think!

Looking for someone to guide us  (1 Answer)

Would anybody be willing to give my younger brother and two friends a tour of Hiroshima on Monday, August 21st? They are 21-22 year old Americans, really cool, have never been to Japan and don't know how to get around on their own. They will gladly pay for your attractions and meals, and will bring you gifts from America. I would accompany them, but I am stuck at my Nova job on that day in Yonago. I would like them to see Miya Jima island, the Peace Park, the Okonomayaki restaurant "tower" and whatever else you think is interesting. We would all really appreciate your help. Thanks so much!

Sincerely,
Nick Cohen-Meyer.
