day 6 is going to be too packed. it is about 2hr to get from Hiroshima to Tadanoumi station, and another 15min by ferry to Okunoshima. see schedule here:
http://www.qkamura.or.jp/ohkuno/acce.../jikokuhyo.pdf

it is likely to be afternoon by the time u are back in Hiroshima. peace park and memorial museum can easily take the whole afternoon. and Shukkenien closes at 5pm. u will probably have to drop Suhkkenien and castle. Hondori u can leave it for the evening or do it on day 5 evening since there is nothing to do at all in miyajima after dark.

Or you could do miyajima and peace park in the same day. I did that. including the mountain at miyajima.

"Cheap" is very vague leh. What sort of budget are you looking at?

this kind of vague open ended qns without even bother to self google to narrow down the scope. why dont you just stay in some capsule hotel since it's cheap.

if it is peach airline, it is on a separate terminal that require a shuttle bus. u probably will not be able to make it in time in tt case coz u still need to clear customs and domestic usually require u to check in 30min before flight
