The Miyajima Marathon is one of the most scenic Fun Runs in the springtime. The course will take you along breathtaking views of the green islands in the Seto Inland Sea surrounded by cherry blossoms in the mountains. After the race, relax and ease your pain away in an onsen and enjoy all the tourist activities in Miyajima. Visit the Itsukushima Shrine, a World Heritage Site and National Treasure, to see the famous floating torii gate. Or hop on the Miyajima Ropeway to "walk" on the Seto Inland Sea for a panoramic view of Mt. Misen. It is also the perfect time of year for the Hatsukaichi City Sakura Festival! Register now and explore the beautiful island of Miyajima.
