Miyajima is an island just outside Hiroshima with a lots of temples and shrines. The view over one of the shrines, Itsukushima-jinja, is ranked as one of the top three views in Japan. The island also has a lot of natural scenery, and it is a good hike to walk up to the highest peak on the island, 532 m above sea level and down again. There is a ropeway that covers the part of the trip for the lazy ones. (Myself, I went by foot in both directions.) The island is not overly populated; the main housing is a village that runs from the ferry port to the area where the temples and shrines are located, and which offers the regular tourist-trap attractions. Miyajima is a popular tourist destination.
