Miyajima Island (Momjidani Park)宮島(紅葉谷公園)

Event

The Edo period Confucian scholar Hayashi Shunsai (former name Gaho) selected three locations in Japan for their picturesque scenery as described in his Nihonkoku-jiseki-ko (1643). Among them is the virgin forest on the northern slope of Mt. Misen. Its Momjidani Park is known as Miyajima's most outstanding sight. There are about 700 Japanese maple trees throughout the park, including varieties like iroha-kaede, omomiji, Honshu maple and yamamomiji mountain maples. During the period of changing leaves from the middle to the end of November, the whole area is dyed a burning red. The quiet flow of the Momijidani River coupled with the scenic beauty of Mt. Misen provides the foliage viewing experience of a deep mountain ravine.

          Hiroshima Main Areas

          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.
