Transport logistics: Kyoto, Hiroshima/Miyajima, Kyushu

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

I'm starting to plan a trip to Japan, and have questions about which international airport(s) to fly in and out of and how to get to various places we have in mind to sightsee.

I have a conference in Kyoto the 3rd week of March, and want to take about a week off to sightsee nearby places. We've been to Kyoto and Nara before, so want to a bit further afield.

* Maybe 2 or 3 days before Kyoto meeting, I'll visit Hiroshima and Miyajima. Best to fly in to Osaka from the US?

* From Hiroshima, take a train to Kyoto? Which train?

* After 1 week in Kyoto, then go to Kyushu island. By train or fly?

* Fly out of Kyushu from Fukuoa?

Please recommend specific places that are particularly scenic and uniquely Japanese. We're interested in nature, onsen, hiking, culture, history.

Thanks all in advance!
