Autumn leaves in Miyajima

Hello, this is Tomomi from Hiroshima Hana.

These days, it is getting cold in the night and in the morning…summer is over.

However, that means that the best season to visit Miyajima is coming soon!

Miyajima is famous for its autumn leaves. They will start turning red and yellow from November and the best period to experience that is from the middle to the end of November.

For the best pictures of the colorful leaves we recommend Momijidani Park. The Park is stretching along the Momijidani river near the valley at the foot of Mount Misen. There are around 200 trees waiting for you (about 20 min by foot from the Miyajima ferry port).

Enjoy the beautiful autumn colors in Miyajima!

 Konnichiwa from Hiroshima Hana Hostel. It's Kana here.

Do you like Japanese food?
I guess Japanese restaurant is all over the world so everybody has opportunity to have them any time, but not LOCAL food.

This is for Japanese food lover! Why don't we try something local if you are in Japan!?
not like Tempura, Sashimi, which are available everywhere.


Hiroshima Food Festival is held every year.
Local dishes from across the prefecture will be available in one place during this two-day celebration of Hiroshima's culinary treasures.
The event will provide live stage entertainment in addition to featuring an amazing number of food stands offering the tastes of Hiroshima.

It wil be great opportunity to be an expert of WASHOKU!!
