Welcome to Miyajima Hotel Makoto
Hotel Makoto is a traditional Japanese ryokan on Miyajima Island, one of the three most scenic places in Japan and a UNESCO World Heritage site that simply oozes romance and history.
The hotel's selling points are the commodious Japanese-style rooms of 22.8 m, the wonderful "Setouchi Kaiseki" (dishes of local Seto inland seafood) prepared by the head chef using seasonal ingredients, and the excellent location with Itsukushima Shrine being just a 10 minute walk away. The whole team at the hotel go that extra mile for you to ensure you leave with wonderful memories of your Miyajima holiday. We very much hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you soon.

Sightseeing spots around Miyajima Hotel Makoto
Miyajima Island is located in the west of Hiroshima Prefecture. A small island of roughly 30km in circumference and home to wild deer, it has been revered since ancient times as "Kami no Shima", or "Island of the Gods".
Rising up behind Itsukushima Shrine and its Otorii Gate is the great primeval forest with its history, culture and romance that has come to symbolize Miyajima. Gazing at Miyajima Island from the ferry, the green of the mountains, the blue of the ocean and the vermilion of Itsukushima Shrine create so beautiful a reflective contrast as to mesmerize visitors. The harmony between the crafted elegance of Itsukushima Shrine and the natural beauty of Miyajima's primeval forest is truly a treasure belonging to all mankind, and was recognized as such with its designation in December 1996 as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Miyajima Island is a place to sense history, feel changing seasons, be captivated by beautiful scenery and generally enjoy the sightseeing all around.
Miyajima has in recent years become a Tourism and Friendship City with Mont Saint-Michel in France in recognition of the islands' shared features: They are both world heritage sites on the sea, have over a thousand years of history as places of faith, and are one of the most famous tourist destinations in their respective nations. The area has gained in popularity as a major tourism spot recently, with visitors coming not just from France, but all over the world.
