Museum of Historical and Folklore Materials宮島歴史民俗資料館
This history museum is located in Hatsukaichi City. Documents and folk culture items relating to the history and culture of Itsukushima Island, also called Miyajima, are preserved and on display at this museum. The historical artifacts concerning the Taira clan, who worshiped at this Itsukushima shrine, are of foremost interest. The erstwhile life of the residents of Miyajima Island can be tangibly experienced through the plethora of items, such as the rickshaws and earlier mailboxes, and memento ladles. A portion of the museum is housed in the former dwelling and clay storehouse of the Egami family, who were wealthy merchants prospering during the late Edo period and Meiji period. The beautifully manicured Japanese garden with a pond can be enjoyed from the main dwelling. The museum is a 3-minute walk from the Itsukushima Shrine exit.

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
