Hiroshima has the largest tram network in Japan, with nine lines all connecting at Hiroshima Station. For unlimited use on all trams, it's possible to buy a one-day pass (which may include the ferry ride to Miyajima for an additional fee). A two-day pass is also valid on trams, the ferry, and Miyajima Ropeway.
The Japan Rail Pass is popular among tourists because it allows for pass holders to travel on all JR lines, except some Shinkansen and express trains. The JR Pass must be organised prior to arrival in Japan via an official JR Pass outlet in the visitor's country of origin; these may be sourced online. Taxis are available almost anywhere. Buses also run throughout the city and suburbs; tickets can be purchased on the bus.
