There are many many ways.

First you need to get to Hiroshima from Osaka, there are many ways detailed on the Japan-guide page here:

(Select to/from OSAKA)


Then read this page from Hiroshima to Miyajima:


How long you should stay or what you should do is up to you and your interests. Read the japan-guide page on Miyajima and see what is interesting for you.

Hi there I can guide you from Hiroshima station. Take the #2 cable car and go to the end of the line (takes about an hour). From here take the ferry to the island which is about 10 mins. If you left osaka early enough you could go to Miyajima first and then take the same cable car back and get of at the atomic dome park where you would certainly have time to visit the museum and walk round the park to see some of the many monuments dedicated to the tragedy. If you are going to go all that way it would be a pity not to fit it into your itinerary and you could in theory do both on the same day and still get back to the station for a train back to osaka.

have a great day

You shouldn't miss the Daisho-In temple in Miyajima, it's wonderful

The fastest way is to take the Shinkansen from Shin-Osaka to Hiroshima, transfer to the JR Sanyo Line to Miyajima-guchi then take the ferry. I would not take the tram (referred to as the #2 cable car by angie) because it takes much longer than the JR train.

You can do Hiroshima as a day trip or spend a night there. I think more than one night is too long since there is not much to do in Miyajima at night.

As mentioned, Daisho-in is a great temple. Don't miss it.
