Japan Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I will be spending 10 days in Japan starting mid March 2017. Flying into Narita from HK early morning of the 13th.

My plan is to take Jetstar flight that morning (very cheap fare) to Osaka where I will begin my travels.

Day 1 Osaka (2 nights)
Day 3 Travel to Hiroshima / Miyajima (1 night)
Day 4 Travel to Kyoto (3 nights)
Day 7 Travel to Kanazawa (2 nights)
Day 9 Travel to Tokyo (2 nights)
Day 11 Evening flight (9pm) to Sydney. I will have full day to spend in Tokyo along with days 9-10.

The other advantage I am thinking I have is that I can buy 7 day Japan Rail Pass starting in Osaka on days 2 or 3 and that gets me back to Tokyo on day 9, without having to spring for the 14 day pass expense. Your thoughts ??

My questions are these :
1 - Am I better off going Osaka > Hiroshima or Kyoto > Hiroshima routing wise ??
2 - Should I spend 2 nights in Hiroshima and reduce Kyoto to 2 nights ??

Thanks.
