3 nights to spare between Hiroshima and Kyoto where to go?

Hi

I am travelling in Japan for three weeks going to Hakone, Kanazawa, Osaka, Hiroshima, Kyoto and Tokyo. I have three days that are unplanned and don't know how where best to spend my time. I think I need some chill time but don't necessarily need to spend all three nights in one place. Perhaps two nights chilling and one a bit more active. I did consider going to Nagasaki for one night and then a ryokan with hot springs in Kyushu but not sure if it's worth the travel time when I need to get back to Kyoto.. Kurashiki and Tsuwano were proposed?? I'd really like a Ryoken with a private bath too. All ideas would be appreciated....thanks!!

How about Beppu and Matsuyama? Both are famous for onsen and accessible by ferry to each other. Tsuwano sounds nice too. You can virtually visit any place in Kyushu. Chugoku and Seto Inland Sea region if you have a rail pass and 3days.

Thanks I'll look into those destinations. Was slightly put off BEPPU by the size of the hotels. I was looking for traditional but luxurious ryokan with a private hot spring bath. Do you know of any there?

I would definitely stay a night in Miyajima after Hiroshima.

yeah as Chrella advised, should definitely spend one night at a Ryokan in Miyajima. as to ryokans with private bathrooms i'm not too sure though but this has had some good reviews on tripadvisor :)

Check out Naoshima, the art island near Okayama in the inland sea.

Kyushu is very rewarding & has great scenery. Yufuin is a very lovely town with a lot of accommodation - ryokan & onsen some will have private onsen bath for sure. yufuin.or.jp/global/index.php…

It's easily accessible by train from Hakata on the Yufuin no Mori sightseeing train. jrkyushu.co.jp/english/…yufuin_no_mori.html
