A great way to experience Miyajima

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location
Location: Miyajima Island has many interesting temples and attractions including the O-torii Gate, Itsukushima Shrine, Daishoin Temple, Museum and old town.
This is a very good hotel which is well situated on Miyajima Island to allow easy access to all the island has to offer. The room was clean and comfortable (with the beds being a little hard for our liking) and we had a view of the O-torii Gate from our balcony. The hotel staff were very friendly and willing to assist. A shuttle bus service is available to and from the ferry terminal which makes access much easier. It is also and inexpensive taxi fare away from the terminal. We stayed for two nights to allow for a bit of down time on our recent trip and Miyajima is a great place to do this. After the day tourists leave the island is very quiet - with nothing open, so make sure your hotel offers and evening meal as part of your package. The evening meals provided the opportunity to try a number of local dishes and seafood. This is a good hotel and spending a little extra time on Miyajima Island allows you to see all that is has to offer, including the different views of the O-tori Gate and Itsukushima Shrine at high and low tide. Both are illuminated until 11.00 pm at night, which also makes for a great view.

Splendor Overlooking the Shrine

Posted Jan 29, 2015 on Hotels
Fabulous. Nestled in the hills and deer-filled forest overlooking the harbor and the world-famous floating Torii gate, this hotel rises up to greet and embrace you in superb comfort and hospitality. From the shuttle bus driver who greets you at the ferry, the front desk staff, the hostess who walks you to your room, the kimono-clad housekeeping staff to the servers who guide you through a traditional meal as delicate as it is delicious, the service is simply remarkable. The beautiful modern lobby blends modern, Western style with traditional Japanese decor, a view of their flowing water garden, and quiet jazz. Our room was large and very comfortable, combining excellent Western-style mattresses and tatami mats, with sliding shoji screen doors and a sofa and arm chairs in-between. The in-room welcome includes tea service at a low table with a tree tops view of the harbor and the world-famous floating gate. Add the multiple shrines, town & hill walks, and plenty of shopping and neighborhood restaurants, staying here made our trip to this small island fifteen minutes from Hiroshima jump from a delightful day to a blissful memory that will linger. The only mark against this delightful hotel was some furniture that needs refinishing. We recommend this spot to anyone who wants to experience the best, a romantic evening or two together, to balance a somber, thought-provoking visit to the Hiroshima with a restorative time in the beauty of old Japan.

A great place to stay for the night in Miyajima.

Miyajima Grand Hotel Arimoto is located just 3 min walk from the famed torii gate. Stay was very comfortable and dinner was sumptuous and beautifully displayed.

ロケーション・ホスピタリティともに素晴らしい旅館

Posted Nov 25, 2014
Location: 弥山ロープウェイを上りその後軽くお散歩のはずが結構激しいハイキングでした。
厳島神社にちかく、旅館の方の島内観光のご説明も素晴らしく、旅館内アクティビティもとても楽しく参加させていただきました。朝、昼、晩の厳島神社をゆっくり見学できて本当によかったです
