You stay overnight in Hiroshima at a western-style hotel or travel by ferry to the UNESCO World Heritage island of Miyajima and stay at a traditional Japanese inn here.

Typical Accommodation
As standard, we offer a comfortable, centrally-located hotel in Hiroshima city, enabling you to enjoy the vast range of meal options this evening.

Please let us know on booking if you would like us to arrange this traditional option and please note that the availability of this option may be scarce during peak seasons, which can sometimes require a date change or supplemental fee.
