On a recent trip to Japan, I carved out some time to visit the naturally beautiful Miyajima Island. Located in Hiroshima Bay, the island is famous for the Itsukushima Shrine and it’s striking red gate that looks like it’s floating on the sea. I loved seeing the multitude of unusually tame deer that wander around, and exploring the island’s perfectly manicured Japanese gardens.
Japan was sweltering in the summer when I visited, and I relied heavily on the sandals, tank top and skirt combo, along with a little scarf to show respect when visiting the temples. And don’t forget accessories! I find that sunglasses, bangles and a good pair of hoop earrings will pull any outfit together–I never leave home without them.

I would agree that this is a stunning place. I took my two sons and a nephew there immediately after visiting the Hiroshima Peace Park Museum, and what a wonderful way to end the day. We experienced the worst of Japan’s past in Hiroshima and then witnessed pure Nippon beauty here at Miyajima Island – something my sons and I’ll never forget.
I’m glad you enjoyed it there too, Brent! I bet your sons and nephew loved all the deer! Thanks for reading.
