Hiroshima Port

Connecting Hiroshima to Shikoku and Miyajima

Virginia Gonzalez   - 1 min read

Located at Ujina, in the last stop of the tram lines 1 and 5, Hiroshima Port offers daily connections to Miyajima Island, Matsuyama on Shikoku, and other nearby islands in the Inland Sea. The tram train stops in front of the port's main entrance and it costs 150 yen from any location in the city. From here, visitors can head to the World Heritage Site on Miyajima, where they will observe the famous Itsukushima Shrine and the also famous deer that inhabit the island. A bit further from here is Matsuyama, the capital of Ehime prefecture, famous for its beautiful castle and one of Japan's oldest onsen hot springs.
