We enjoyed everything about our stay at the Miyajima Seaside Hotel. The room and the view were breathtaking. I felt like I experienced the true Japan. The staff were so very helpful and accommodating. We needed an extra early shuttle back to the pier on the day of our departure in order to catch an early train back to the airport in Tokyo, and they were easily available to take us there outside of their normal shuttle hours. The vegetarian dinner was especially appreciated and delicious. The view of the treetops...the beach with the deer roaming through the forest and on the beach was unforgettable. The time we spent at the Floating Gate was one of the most memorable days of our trip. I highly recommend visiting Miyajima Island and staying at the Seaside Hotel.
