OSAKA vs. KYOTO AS BASE

Jump to last reply

At the conclusion of a three-week trip in October, I wish to take four day trips from either Kyoto or Osaka to the following: Nara, Koya-san (if I can find an alternative to a temple for lodging) Himeji and Hiroshima. My plane departs from Osaka’s Kansai.

I’m already booked for 5 nights in Kyoto (3 with a tour, two on my own). It’s the remaining days of my trip that I need to decide: Either Kyoto (if I can obtain a room, it was difficult to obtain a room two days ago) or Osaka, where I assume rooms are easier to find. Yes, I could spend a night or two in Nara or wherever, but I'll have been staying in a lot of hotels the previous two weeks, and prefer a base as I end what should be a wonderful, and first, Japan trip.

If I decide to book more nights in Kyoto, I'd want to spend the final night in Osaka, to be closer to the airport. Or is that faulty logic? Any thoughts, all of which are appreciated.
