Exploring Nara, Koyasan & Hiroshima

Jump to last reply

Here’s my proposed itinerary in mid-October for the 6 days in the Western Honshu region—but I’m open to suggestions. Relevant info: previously to the 6 days, I will have spent 15 days with a tour visiting Tokyo, Hakone, Takayama, Kanazawa and ending up with two days in Kyoto. First visit to Japan.

Day 1: Continue to explore Kyoto. (The two days I’ll have been there on my tour are not enough.) Any suggestions for ryokan/hotel in Kyoto in $200 range?

Day 2: Day trip to Todai-ji Temple Complex in Nara; return to Kyoto.

Day 3: Check out from my Kyoto ryokan/hotel and take train to Koyasan, where I would spend the night in a temple, I hope. Any suggestions for Temple? Will I be able to ship my suitcase from Kyoto to a hotel in Osaka, where I will be heading from Koyosan?

Day 4: Explore Mount Koya area, and return to Osaka that evening, checking into my hotel. Any suggestions for a quiet hotel in $200 range in Osaka? (Hope my suitcase will have arrived from Kyoto.)

Day 5: Relax in Osaka.

Day 6: Day trip to Hiroshima. Return to Osaka in evening.

Day 7: Depart from Osaka Kansai for USA.

Is there any way I can squeeze Himeji Castle into this itinerary, or is that pushing things? I don’t think it would work for me to visit Himeji Castle on the way to Hiroshima; I would end up not doing justice to either. Thanks in advance.
