Kinsuikan is a fancy, traditional ryokan located minutes away from Miyajima’s famed Itsukushima Shrine and bustling Omotesando shopping arcade. As one would expect from any ryokan, Kinsuikan offers exquisite meals in lavish dining rooms as well as hot springs with healing properties, and even day trippers can bathe in the afternoon or evening. The rooms also feature views of either the Seto Inland Sea or the town, and guests can even order room service so they can enjoy the high life in solitude.
Moment of Joy
Several festivals take place on Miyajima throughout the year, so during those periods, room rates skyrocket and hotels on the island book out months in advance. However, this is all for a good reason, as having a place to stay on Miyajima after celebrating can contribute to an out-of-this-world experience for tourists to the area. Being able to book a night here during an event can even become a bragging right or a mark of prestige, attracting the envy of locals.
