A friend and I will be travelling to Japan March 25 (arriving around noon) and departing April 1 (in the afternoon). We are planning on purchasing JR passes. We fly into Osaka and will be flying out of Narita.
My original plan was to travel to Kyoto for 4 nights and than to Tokyo for 3 nights – but we’re flexible other than our flight dates.
While in Kyoto we were thinking of spending a full day to visit Hiroshima and Miyajima. And than probably also Nara (something else if more highly recommended).
Should I revamp my plan to stay a night (or 2?) in Hiroshima? Than Kyoto, than Tokyo?
Suggestions on travel routes and any other ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much!
