Transprt from Hiroshima Airport to Miyajima

I know that there is a ferry from Hiroshima station that takes us to Miyajimaguchi in 25 minutes. Does this ferry run frequently? Also is it easy to obtain a taxi from Miyajimaguchi Pier to the Iwaso Inn?

I also read that one can take a shuttle bus from the airport to Hiroshima station, again does this run frequently, do I need to prebook, and it is easy for us to travel with our one year old son and several bags.

Alternativly is there a Limo or taxi service.

Many thanks!

There is no ferry from the Hiroshima station.

The ferry for Miyajima leaves from Miyajimaguchi.It runs about every 15 minutes.

In Miyajima island there are few taxis , so you had better to ask the hotel for a courtesy car service.

The shuttle bus from the airport runs frequently and you don't have to make a reservation.It is the most convenient and comfortable way to go to the station.

This is the time schedule.

Have a nice trip!
