Onwards travel/journey times and Miyajmia - whats possible?!

Hi,

We are travelling to Japan in October. We land at Osaka airport on a sunday at 0840 in the morning and was thinking we would go to Hiroshima that day, spending two nights there till Tuesday when we have to travel to Sapporo.

We are wondering if we are best staying Monday night on Miyajma as its meant to be beautiful at night or with all the travelling we will have done, if we will be better basing ourselves in Hiroshima for the two nights and doing a day trip to the Island? Also thinking about carting luggage around with us! Advice/opinion welcome! What time is the last JR West Miyajima Ferry that leaves the Island in the evening and what time is the first ferry that leaves it in the morning?

We need to travel to Sapporo on Tuesday - is it possible to get from Miyajmi island to Kobe airport for a flight that leaves at 1115 or Kansai airport for a flight that leaves at 1310, or Itami airport for a flight that leaves at 1430? I was also wondering if its worth actually looking at flights from Fukoaka or Hiroshima airports instead? Hiroshima airport doesnt seem to have that many direct to Sapporo and they are expensive.

We are thinking of getting the Kansai & Hiroshima pass rather than the JR Pass as we only need it in that area for those 3 days. Up in Hokkaido we will have a car. However, that would mean we could not use it to get to Fukoaka airport if we decide that is a better option.

Thanks. I have seen this. The offers for foreign visitors I seem to be able to access on the ANA websites, but annoyingly for JAL it is only done through selected travel agents, and I don't know which ones do this! JAL flight out of hiroshima is much more expensive than other airlines out of Osaka.

See the timetable for JR West Miyajima Ferry.

There's another ferry between Miayjima and Miyajimaguchi. Other than these, Miyajima can be reached from Hiroshima Port and the wharf near Peace Park in Hiroshima CBD.

Stay in Hiroshima - look after yourself. You don't need the extra hassle of moving hotels (and luggage) twice just after arrival.
