No. The JR ferries to Miyajima depart from Miyajima Guchi Station, which is about one hour from Hiroshima Port, where the ferry from Matsuyama arrives. But note that there are a few direct (non JR) ferries from Hiroshima Port to Miyajima. It is all explained here:

Hiroshima Port to JR Hiroshima 2007/4/16 22:10
I was wondering how easy it is to get from Hiroshima port to JR Hiroshima station. Is there a train or bus that links the 2 together? And if so what frequency?

Ferry to Miyajima 2008/1/2 00:11
Hi,

I'm going to Hiroshima with a HR pass in April. Would like to ask if anyone knows if the ferry operating btw the Peace Memorial Park & Miyajima is owned by the JR and what are the timings?

The guide book I am referring to states there are eight ferries plying the route daily but doesn't state what time it leaves Hiroshima.

to Miyajima 2008/1/2 09:24
Samantha: thiS is what I found:
Boats to Miyajima FROM PEACE PARK:
The two boats Kirara and Rururu run between the Pier in front of the Resthouse in Peace Park and Miyajima in a 45 minute trip. While the price is a bit steep (1900 Yen one way, 3000 return), it is a nice way to enjoy a rest and the change of landscape from the urban rivers to the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. Boats run five times a day. Please make a reservation and check departure times, as they vary according to the river tide conditions.

if you have a JR pass you would be better off to either take a tram from Peace park to Miyajimaguchi near the pier for the JR ferries to Miyajima (55 minutes by tram plus 10 minutes by ferry) or go back from the Peace park to Hiroshima JR station then a local train (30 minutes) to Miyajimaguchi. OR, if you don't have a JR pass(good on the ferry), when you buy your tram tickets by Hiroshima main JR station, buy a day pass including a ferry trip to Miyajima. THE TRAMS RUN MORE OFTEN THAN THE TRAINS BY THE WAY.. and the JR ferries to Miyajima run every 10 minutes or less while the ones from the Peace park run much less frequently.
