I really enjoyed a stay on Miyajima, in a ryokan, it was the highlight of my trip in fact. The torji gate (red one) is nice, but the tame monkeys and deer in the forest and the cable car trip up the sacred mountain were absolutely fantastic. I also loved staying in the ryokan, the old lady who ran it was fantastic, her son gaves us lifts to see the gate at sunset and served the most amazing dinner ever. So lovely to have a tranquil night away from city crazyness.|
Also as much as I enjoyed Tokyo, I enjoyed Kyoto much more, it's so incredibly beautiful and unexpected temples, shrines and random stuff around every corner. I just walked around for hours discovering stuff!
